US, European Stocks Rise; Key Asian Markets Decline


U.S. stock markets are up about one percent following Friday's congressional approval of a controversial measure to aid the battered financial sector.

European markets gained between two and three percent by the close of trading.

It was a different story in Asia, where Japan's benchmark Nikkei index fell two percent, and Hong Kong's Hang Seng index was down nearly three percent.
