Asian stocks tumble as Italian crisis knocks global sentiment

Asian shares extended a global sell-off in early trading Wednesday as Italy’s political crisis provoked a heavy retreat on Wall Street, sent the euro to a 10-month low and pushed up borrowing costs for the government in Rome.

MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down 1.1 percent, while Japan’s Nikkei average shed 1.7 percent to hit a six-week low. South Korea’s KOSPI and the Australian stock benchmark slipped 1.6 percent and 0.7 percent, respectively.
