Japan’s Nikkei dropped on Thursday morning after renewed U.S.-China trade tensions dragged down technology shares, while index-heavyweight SoftBank Group fell more than 5 percent.

The Nikkei share average declined 0.9% to 21,101.14 in midmorning trade.

Tech shares were sold heavily after media reports on Wednesday said the United States was considering sanctions on video surveillance firm Hikvision.

TDK Corp dived 6.4%, Advantest Corp tumbled 4.1%, Tokyo Electron shed 2.5%, and Sony Corp slid 3.6%.
