FTSE 100 Falls as Travel, Retail Stocks Drop; Oil Gains

0921 GMT - The FTSE 100 Index drops 0.8% to 7113 as losses for travel-related stocks, retailers and miners offset gains for oil majors. Markets in mainland China and Japan fell, though stocks in Hong Kong were higher. "A mixed session overnight has come despite another dramatic decline in U.S. indices, with markets reacting to the first Omicron case in the U.S.," IG analysts say. Carnival, Intercontinental Hotels Group, JD Sports Fashion and Marks & Spencer are among the biggest fallers. BP and Royal Dutch Shell are among a few risers as the price of Brent crude gains 1.3% to $69.78 a barrel. (philip.waller@wsj.com)
