European markets closed slightly higher Friday, as investors monitored ongoing Brexit uncertainty and developments in the U.S.-China trade war.

The pan-European Stoxx 600 closed up by around 0.25% to 386.89, with most sectors and major bourses in positive territory.

Looking at individual stocks, Britain's G4S surged toward the top of the European benchmark. It comes after Sky News reported Brink's — a U.S.-based cash handling giant — was plotting a bid to acquire its cash solution business. Shares of the world's largest security company jumped more than 6% on the news.

On Friday, the closely watched U.S. nonfarm payrolls report showed 130,000 jobs had been created in August, slightly lower than anticipated. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had expected nonfarm payrolls to increase by 150,000.
