Japanese corporate earnings reports and tensions in Ukraine.
    The Nikkei average closed down 0.9 percent at
14,388.77, after rising as much as 0.6 percent earlier. The
broader Topix fell 0.8 percent to 1,162.50, though
trading volume was the second lowest so far this year.
    The new JPX-Nikkei Index 400 shed 0.7 percent to
10,579.99.
