Nikkei dips after strong aftershock rocks Japan

 TOKYO, April 8 (Reuters) - The Nikkei average slipped on
Friday after a major earthquake rocked northeast Japan the night
before, sending Wall Street lower, but losses were seen limited
as the quake did not trigger a tsunami and there was no further
damage to a crippled nuclear power plant.	
 The benchmark Nikkei average was down 0.4 percent at
9,558.72, while the broader Topix lost 0.7 percent to
835.38.
