[TOKYO] Japanese stocks edged down on Tuesday as a suicide bomb attack at a pop concert in Britain made investors cautious and lifted the safe-haven yen, which depressed some export-oriented shares.

The Nikkei share average fell 0.3 per cent to 19,613.28.

The broader Topix shed 0.2 per cent to 1,565.22 and the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 declined 0.2 per cent to 13,973.43.
