Nikkei rises for 5th day on hopes for imminent U.S. deal

By Ayai Tomisawa
    TOKYO, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average rose
for a fifth straight session on Tuesday on hopes that U.S.
lawmakers will soon reach a deal to reopen the government and
avert a possible debt default, with a weaker yen lifting such
bellwether stocks as Sony Corp.
    The Nikkei rose 0.3 percent to 14,441.54. The Topix
 was virtually flat, edging up 0.03 percent to 1,197.47.
