[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks fell 1.36 per cent Wednesday, ending a two-day rally as a pick-up in the yen held back exporters and uncertainty hung over world oil output.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 dropped 218.07 points to close at 15,836.36, while the Topix index of all first-section shares fell 1.13 per cent, or 14.61 points, to 1,282.40.
