Nikkei drops as stronger yen, China worries hurt sentiment
TOKYO, May 19 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average dropped on Monday, extending losses from Friday as a stronger yen made investors risk averse, while sentiment was also hurt by weak China shares on concerns about slower growth in the world's second-biggest economy. The Nikkei ended 0.6 percent lower at 14,006.44. The broader Topix declined 0.8 percent to 1,150.07, while the new JPX-Nikkei Index 400 slipped 0.7 percent to 10,491.39.
