NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks are falling and bond prices are rising as tensions build over Russia's military presence in the Ukraine.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell 14 points, or 0.8 percent, to 1,845. The S&P 500 closed at a record high on Friday.

The Nasdaq composite fell 30 points, or 0.7 percent, to 4,277.

Russia's benchmark stock index plunged 12 percent. Stocks also fell sharply in Europe. Germany's DAX fell the most, 3.4 percent.
