TORONTO May 21 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index turned positive, clawing back from a near-2 percent drop, as the fall in prices attracted buyers after a six-day slide brought on by Europe's debt woes and fears about outlook for global economic growth.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 1.85 points at 11,407.80. Earlier, it had slumped to a 14-week low.

The hefty oil and materials groups led the index higher, up 0.7 percent and 1 percent, respectively. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson)
