[HONG KONG] Hong Kong shares finished up on Thursday after a strong rally on Chinese markets, but underperformed mainland boards as investors sold off selected heavyweights in real estate, information technology and gaming giant Sands China, seen as hurt by China's anti-corruption campaign.

The Hang Seng index rose 0.5 per cent, to 24,902.06, while the China Enterprises Index gained 1.4 per cent, to 12,227.75 points.

Total trading volume of companies included in the HSI index rose from previous days to 1.9 billion shares.
