TORONTO, April 12 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index closed sharply lower for the second day on Tuesday, hitting its weakest level in nearly 4 weeks as energy and mining shares were battered by a broad-based commodities selloff.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed down 195.46 points, or 1.4 percent, at 13,801.40. (Reporting by Claire Sibonney; editing by Rob Wilson)
