Nikkei suffers biggest drop in eight months as yen rebounds

TOKYO, Jan 16 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average fell
2.6 percent on Wednesday,  its biggest one-day drop in eight
months, as a rebound in the yen prompted investors to take
profits on shares of exporters.
    The Nikkei lost 278.64 points to 10,600.44, while
the broader Topix shed 2 percent to 888.11.
