TORONTO Jan 7 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell more than 2 percent on Thursday, as tumult in China spooked investors and energy stocks weighed heavily as crude prices stuck under $34 a barrel.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 278.59 points, or 2.19 percent, at 12,448.21. Its energy stocks fell 4.2 percent. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by James Dalgleish)
