TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average fell on Monday in choppy trade as worries about China's economic and financial stability soured investor sentiment, dragging down China-related stocks such as construction equipment makers and some exporters.
The benchmark Nikkei <.N225>, which climbed as much as 1.5 percent early in the session, dropped 1.3 percent to end at 13,062.78. The Topix <.TOPX> dropped 0.9 percent to 1,089.64
