TORONTO, May 17 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
rebounded on Thursday after hitting a 2012 low the previous
session, as gains from gold miners offset soft U.S. jobless
claims data and mounting worries about turmoil in Greece and
Europe's fragile banking sector.	
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 49.80 points, or 0.4 percent, at 11,375.88,
shortly after the open. It recovered after hitting a seven-month
low on Wednesday at 11,298.46.
