Japan in surprise trade surplus
Japan has reported its first trade surplus in five months.
February revealed a surplus of nearly 33bn yen ($394m, £248m).
It's in stark contrast to January, when a record trade deficit of 1.5tn yen - or almost $20bn - was reported.
Last year, the country posted its first annual trade deficit in more than three decades - which came in at $32bn and was a huge setback for a country known for its exports including cars and electronics.
