 TORONTO, Oct 1 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell
2 percent to its lowest level in nearly three weeks on Thursday
afternoon as lackluster economic data from the United States
raised concerns about the strength of the economic recovery.
 At 1:15 p.m. (1715 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE was down 227.78 points, or 2 percent, at 11,167.18.
It was the TSX's lowest level since Sept. 11.
