 TOKYO, June 14 (Reuters) - Japan's industrial output rose 1.6 percent in April, revised data
showed on Tuesday, suggesting that factory activity is picking up after the previous month's
record fall due to a massive earthquake and tsunami that struck on March 11.  	
The figure compared with an initial reading of a 1.0 percent rise and follows a 15.5 percent
drop in March, the fastest fall on record.
