US stocks dropped early Friday, as the battering of markets in the wake of a major attack in Spain showed no signs of slowing, and amid what one analyst called "festering dysfunction" at the White House.

[NEW YORK] US stocks opened lower on Tuesday as investors turned risk averse ahead of British elections and former FBI Director James Comey's much-anticipated testimony before Congress later this week.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 52.77 points, or 0.25 per cent, to 21,131.27. The S&P 500 lost 6.48 points, or 0.26 per cent, to 2,429.62. The Nasdaq Composite dropped 14.11 points, or 0.22 per cent, to 6,281.57.
