Asian shares down on trade anxiety; lira, rouble hit by economic worries

The rouble slid to its lowest level since late 2016 on Thursday, hitting 66.7099 roubles to the dollar. At 0021 GMT Thursday, it was changing hands at 66.5245 to the dollar.
The turmoil in emerging currencies and ongoing global trade tensions helped to support the dollar Thursday, but it was little changed in early Asian trading.
Japan's Nikkei stock index fell 0.5 percent despite data showing that the country's economy expanded at a faster-than-expected annualised rate of 1.9 percent in the second quarter in a sign of improving momentum.
