TOKYO, March 19 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average rebounded

session on receding fears that a controversial bailout proposal
for Cyprus could reignite the euro zone crisis.
    The Nikkei rose 247.60 points to 12,468.23, 0.74
percent below a 4-1/2 year high of 12,560.95 marked last Friday.
Exporters and financials supported the rebound.   
    The broader Topix gained 1.7 percent to 1,045.89.
