TREASURIES-U.S. 5-year yield climbs to highest since 2011

NEW YORK, March 9 (Reuters) - The yield on U.S. five-year Treasury notes rose on Thursday to the highest in nearly six years as a bond market selloff accelerated in mid-afternoon U.S. trading.

At 2:25 p.m. (1925 GMT), the five-year Treasury yield was up more than 4 basis points at 2.126 percent after touching 2.135 percent, which was last seen in April 2011, according to Reuters data.
