Nikkei falls to 4-week low on poor Spanish debt sale

TOKYO, April 5 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average fell to a
four-week low in early trade on Thursday after a poor Spanish
debt auction and fading hopes of further U.S. monetary stimulus,
extending the previous session's 2.3 percent slide, its worst
day in five months.	
    The Nikkei shed 0.7 percent to 9,747.80, on track
for its third straight losing day. The broader Topix 
index was down 1.1 percent at 826.65.
