Nikkei drops 1.8 pct on U.S. concerns ahead of BOJ decision

TOKYO, April 4 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average dropped
1.8 percent in early trade on Thursday, with sentiment affected
by concerns over the U.S. recovery after weaker-than-expected
data as markets waited on the outcome of a Bank of Japan policy
meeting. 
    The Nikkei shed 222.82 points to 12,139.38, while
the broader Topix index lost 1.5 percent to 995.60.
