TOKYO, Jan 28 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average rose
at Monday's open, striking a 32-month high above 11,000 after
the yen weakened over the weekend and U.S. stocks advanced
strongly, although the benchmark quickly pared its gains as
investors awaited domestic earnings results for cues.
    The Nikkei was up 0.6 percent at 10,994.42 after
rising as high as 11,002.89, while the broader Topix put
on 0.7 percent to 923.36.
