Nikkei regains ground after Thursday's 7.3 percent slide

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average regained ground on Friday after a 7.3-percent dive in the previous session, its biggest one-day percentage drop in two years after weak Chinese factory data spooked investors.

The Nikkei climbed 2.4 percent to 14,827.50, while the broader Topix index rose 2 percent to 1,213.11.
