Miners drag down European shares, Actelion slumps


Nov 29 European shares extended the previous session's losses on Tuesday, with commodities-related stocks coming under renewed selling pressure after a sharp decline in metals and oil prices. The broader market also weakened after Swiss biotech firm Actelion fell more than 6 percent on a report saying the company was not actively considering selling itself, but instead weighing a "complicated deal" to link with Johnson & Johnson.
