At 0810GMT, the FTSEurofirst 300 index of top European shares was up 0.9 percent at 1021.40 points, building on a two-month high hit on Monday.

Xstrata and Kazakhmys, both up around 4 percent, helped Britain’s FTSE rise 1.6 percent as the index, which closed early on Friday and was shut on Monday, caught up with a rally in the rest of Europe.
