TORONTO, May 30 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index hit a
one-week low on Wednesday as oil and gas and mining firms
slumped on increased global growth fears, fueled by the
escalating euro zone debt crisis and as China signalled it is
not planning a large economic stimulus.	
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 176.04 points, or 1.5
percent, at 11,433.26, its lowest close in a week. The index has
slumped more than 7 percent in May.
