TOKYO, Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo stocks closed lower Thursday as some Asian markets losing ground and Wall Street's plunge overnight dented investor sentiment amid mounting concerns over a resurgence of coronavirus cases in Europe.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average dropped 258.67 points, or 1.11 percent, from Wednesday to close the day at 23,087.82.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, fell 17.81 points, or 1.08 percent, to end at 1,626.44.

Iron and steel, nonferrous metal and mining issues comprised those that declined the most by the close of play.
