Japan hit in ratings

JAPAN'S rating has been slashed to Aa3 by Moody's Investors Services due to poor economic progress.

The agency blamed a build-up of debt since the 2009 global recession, the effects of the economy and unstable political leadership. Japan is preparing to elect its sixth leader in five years to replace the unpopular prime minister Naoto Kan.
