Sept 16 (Reuters) - UK’s main index retreated after four days of gains as weak China data stoked global growth worries, while oil majors jumped 3% after crude oil prices surged following attacks on Saudi Arabian oil facilities.
The FTSE 100 fell 0.2% by 0719 GMT, with the FTSE 250 also down by the same level.
BP and Shell were up as the attacks on Saturday shut about 5% of global supply.
Airline and cruise operator stocks including British Airways owner IAG and cruise company Carnival fell more than 2% due to higher oil prices. (Reporting by Yadarisa Shabong in Bengaluru Editing by Saumyadeb Chakrabarty)
