Japan Nikkei hits 7-week closing low on U.S. earnings

 TOKYO, July 25 (Reuters) - The Nikkei share average fell to
a seven-week closing low on Wednesday after disappointing
results from Apple Inc hit the iPhone maker's Japanese
suppliers, while printer makers fell after Lexmark International
Inc cut its outlook.
 The Nikkei dropped 1.4 percent to 8,365.90 points,
edging closer to its June 4 low of 8,238.96. The benchmark has
fallen 7 percent so far this month, and is down 1 percent this
year.
 The broader Topix index lost 1.6 percent to 706.46.
