   TORONTO, May 6 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell 1
percent on Thursday afternoon, hit by a drop in U.S. crude oil
futures to a 10-week low that was spurred by worries that the
Greek debt crisis may spread to other euro-zone countries and
threaten economic recovery.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE dropped 121.15 points, or 1.02 percent, to
