Nikkei rises to 5-1/2 year high as exporters gain on weakening yen

TOKYO, May 13 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average
surged to a fresh 5-1/2 year high on Monday as the weakening yen
further bolstered exporters, with the mood already underpinned
by U.S. stocks scoring yet another  record high last week. 
    The Nikkei rose 1.1 percent to 14,766.17, the
highest level since January 2008. The broader Topix 
gained 1.2 percent to 1,224.56.
