LONDON, July 22 (Reuters) - European stock markets slipped on Friday, weighed down by falls in mining companies and Swedish construction group Skanska.

The pan-European STOXX 600 and the similar FTSEurofirst 300 were both down by 0.4 percent.

Mining stocks fell as copper prices eased back.

Skanska also dropped 5 percent after the company posted second-quarter earnings below market forecasts. [nL8N1A80P2   Continuación...
