European shares briefly turn positive; Nikkei closes low

Portada en Ingles

European shares reverse losses to turn briefly positive, with banks regaining some of the ground they lost in the previous session on euro zone debt worries.

The FTSEurofirst 300 index of top European shares is down 0.1 percent at 1,013.62 points, but had risen as much as 0.2 percent to 1,016.78, reversing earlier losses.

Japan's Nikkei average fell 2.2 percent to a 10-week closing low as the euro's tumble to a four-year trough chilled investor sentiment and fanned worries that the euro zone's fiscal woes could slow global economic growth.

The benchmark Nikkei lost 226.75 points to 10,235.76, its lowest close since early March, although it early fell nearly 3 percent to 10,158.30.
