The Hang Seng Index fell 1.30 per cent, or 262.48 points, to 19,964.82.

And the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index lost 0.37 per cent, or 10.69 points, to 2,885.01, while the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, gave up 0.33 per cent, or 6.42 points, to 1,940.28.
