Nikkei fall 0.6 pct after US rate fears revive
TOKYO, Apr 10 (Reuters) The Nikkei average fell 0.66 percent on Monday, with profit-taking hitting recent gainers such as Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc., after strong U.S. jobs data revived concerns about higher interest rates and dampened U.S. bond and stock markets.
The Nikkei was down 116.37 points at 17,447.00 as of 0003 GMT. On Friday it closed above 17,500 for the first time since July 2000.
The broader TOPIX index was down 0.61 percent at 1,772.92.
