TORONTO, May 2 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index saw
its five-day rally halted on Wednesday as mining and energy
issues retreated after weak U.S. private-sector jobs data and
shrinking manufacturing activity in Europe and China hurt demand
for riskier commodities.	
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially finished down 102.67 points, or 0.8
percent, to 12,230.12. It was its biggest one-day drop in more
than a week.
