[TOKYO] Tokyo's benchmark stock index gave up early gains and ended flat Tuesday, as investors locked in profits after a weak yen boosted the benchmark share gauge to a nine-month high.

The Nikkei 225 index, which closed at its best level since early February on Monday, was down a marginal 0.03 per cent or 4.47 points to close at 17,668.15. But the broader Topix index of all first-section issues was up 0.21 per cent, or 2.98 points, at 1,402.98.
