TOKYO , Jan. 14 -- ( Kyodo ) _ Tokyo stocks fell sharply Tuesday morning, with the Nikkei hitting its lowest intraday level in about one month, after disappointing U.S. nonfarm payrolls data led the dollar and Wall Street stocks to weaken. The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average shed 326.17 points, or 2.05 percent, from Friday to 15,585.89. The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange was down 20.56 points, or 1.58 percent, at 1,277.92. Japanese financial markets were closed Monday for a national holiday. All of the 33 sector indexes fell, with brokerage, insurance and mining shares leading the slump.
