BANGKOK, Jan 15 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock
markets fell on Friday as a retreat in crude oil futures
triggered sell-offs in energy shares, sending Thai benchmark to
a near one-week low and key indexes in the region extending
losses for the second week.
    Bangkok's SET index dropped 1.4 percent, nearly
erasing gains on the week. It finished at 1,245.85, the lowest
close since Jan. 11.
    Losses were led by top three energy stocks with PTT 
sliding 6 percent, PTT Exploration and Production 
down 6.8 percent and PTT Global Chemical 5.7 percent
lower. 
    Most key indexes in the region posted a second straight
weekly loss, led by Singapore's 4.4 percent and Vietnam's
 about 3 percent.
    Among hit markets, the Malaysian bourse reported a combined
763 million ringgit ($173.55 million) worth of net foreign
selling, with Indonesia 1.9 trillion rupiah ($136.79 million),
stock exchange and Thomson Reuters data showed.
