Tokyo Stock Exchange employees work in front of the computer terminal in Tokyo, Friday, June 21, 2013. Asian stock markets took a beating Friday, as investors remained edgy about whether the U.S. Federal Reserve might start to reduce its monetary stimulus program this year and signs of economic stress in China. Asia's biggest benchmark, Japan's Nikkei stock average, lost 0.6 percent to 12,935.77. (AP Photo/Itsuo Inouye)
