Europe: Stock markets drop at open

[LONDON] Europe's main stock markets fell in opening deals on Tuesday, after losses across most of Asia, with London's FTSE 100 index down 0.9 per cent at 6,125.43 points.

In the eurozone, Frankfurt's DAX 30 index also dipped about 0.9 per cent to 9,688.47 points and the Paris CAC 40 shed around 0.8 per cent to open at 4,405.16 compared with Monday's closing level.
