STI dips 0.28% on fresh Cyprus concerns
ASIAN stocks saw more red ink Friday, with the street violence in Cyprus igniting fresh worries over the crisis-hit country's bailout plans.
But the impact was slight for most markets, with profit-takers sending them marginally lower.
Here, the Straits Times Index (STI) dipped 9.08 points, or 0.28 per cent, to 3,258.57. The benchmark indicator finished 0.8 per cent lower for the week.
Some 5.5 billion shares worth $1.3 billion changed hands.
