Programme announced for August 24

Tokyo - Tokyo stocks fell Friday as the yen's advance against the US dollar led investors to sell mainly export-oriented issues.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 Stock Average declined 133.1 points, or 1.28 per cent, to 10,250.31.

Automotive shares were among those titles that lost most ground, also affected by the early end of the US "cash for clunkers" car trade-in programme announced for August 24.
