Tokyo stocks gain 0.48% at noon, Nikkei 225 up 93.55pts

TOKYO: Tokyo stocks rebounded Friday morning to sit 0.48 percent higher at the break, shrugging off a fall on Wall Street stoked by fears that unrest in Yemen could explode into a wider Middle East conflict.

The Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo STOCK EXCHANGE was up 93.55 points at 19,564.67, while the Topix index of all first-section shares climbed 0.24 percent, or 3.74 points, to 1,572.56.

Traders on Wall Street ran for the sidelines after it emerged that Saudi Arabian jets targeted rebel positions as part of its support of Yemen’s president, who fled his presidential complex Wednesday after it was attacked by a warplane.
