U.K. Stocks Advance as FTSE 100 Rebounds From Third Weekly Slide

U.K. stocks advanced, after the longest streak of weekly losses for the benchmark FTSE 100 Index this year, as Vodafone Group Plc and Rio Tinto Group contributed the most to the gains.

The FTSE 100 added 0.2 percent to 6,537.6 at 8:18 a.m. in London. The gauge lost 2.8 percent last week, falling for a third successive week, as concern grew a potential partition of Ukraine will escalate tensions between the U.S. and Russia. The broader FTSE All-Share Index also rose 0.2 percent today, while Ireland ISEQ Index climbed 0.3 percent.
