 TORONTO, July 27 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
plunged more than 2 percent on Wednesday to its lowest point
this month, as the U.S. political deadlock over raising the
debt ceiling and weak U.S. data sent investors searching for
safety.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE unofficially closed down 267.89 points, or 2.01
percent, at 13,032.67 on Wednesday.
