Nikkei slips, energy stocks weigh after oil price fall

 TOKYO, April 12 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei stock average
fell for a second straight session on Tuesday after oil prices
dropped nearly 3 percent, spurring profit-taking in energy
shares that were seen as overbought after recent rallies.	
 The benchmark average opened down 1.2 percent at
9,603.50, while the broader Topix also shed 1.2 percent
to 842.47.
