TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan’s Nikkei share average fell on Monday in choppy trade as worries about China’s economic and financial stability soured investor sentiment, dragging down China-related stocks such as construction equipment makers and some exporters.

The benchmark Nikkei .N225, which climbed as much as 1.5 percent early in the session, dropped 1.3 percent to end at 13,062.78. The Topix .TOPX dropped 0.9 percent to 1,089.64
