TOKYO, June 21 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average rose 1.7
percent on Friday, erasing early losses as the weakening yen and
rising U.S. futures offset worries about the Federal Reserve's
plan to start scaling back its stimulus programme later this
year.
    The Nikkei rose 215.55 points to 13,230.13 after
falling as low as 12,702.67 earlier on Fed stimulus worries. The
broader Topix added 0.7 percent to 1,099.40.
