Tokyo stocks finish morning 0.11% higher

Tokyo stocks ended Wednesday morning 0.11 percent higher after a string of recent losses stoked by concerns over the global economy and a looming US "fiscal cliff" of spending cuts and tax hikes.

The Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange added 9.62 points to 8,670.67 by the break while the Topix index of all first-section issues gained 0.03 percent, or 0.21 points, to 722.77.
