TORONTO, March 17 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index opened sharply higher on Thursday after falling for three sessions, buoyed by a rise in oil and other commodities even though Japan's nuclear crisis and clashes in the Middle East continued to weigh on market sentiment.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE opened up 144.34 points, or 1.07 percent, at 13,669.16. (Reporting by Claire Sibonney; editing by Peter Galloway)
