Cocktail of global risks sends European stocks tumbling

European stocks tumbled on Tuesday as mounting global political risks sent investors rushing to safe havens. The Stoxx 600 (XX:SXXP)  drifted 0.7% lower, while the DAX (DX:DAX)  fell 0.9% as German economic sentiment plunged along with bond yields. Markets remained nervous over the fragile state of relations between the U.S. and China and the threat of further escalation of the trade war.
