Nikkei edges down in choppy trade as investors avoid risk

TOKYO, July 23 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average
edged down in choppy trade on Wednesday as investors sought to
avoid geopolitical risk such as the Gaza crisis, dragging down
index-heavyweight SoftBank Corp and exporters such as
Honda Motor Co.
    The Nikkei ended 0.1 percent lower to 15,328.56.
    The broader Topix dropped 0.1 percent to 1,272.39,
while the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 was also down 0.1
percent at 11,587.07.
