TOKYO, June 19 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average rose
to a one-week high on Wednesday, helped by a second-straight day
of gains on Wall Street as investors bet that the Federal
Reserve would temper worries about an imminent roll back of its
stimulus programme.
    The Nikkei rose 2.0 percent to 13,265.53, while the
Topix gained 2.1 percent to 1,108.60.
