TOKYO--Tokyo stocks tumbled 2.45 per cent on Thursday as the market was dragged down by worries over emerging markets, after the Federal Reserve further scaled back its stimulus programme.

The benchmark Nikkei-225 index slumped 376.85 points to 15,007.06 - wiping out its 2.70 per cent gain on Wednesday. The Topix index of all first-section shares fell 2.55 per cent, or 32.09 points, to 1,224.09. --AFP
