[HONG KONG] Hong Kong stocks ended slightly lower Tuesday, unable to match an Asian rebound from last week's Brexit-fuelled selloff because of its exposure to Europe-linked companies.

The Hang Seng Index shed 0.27 per cent, or 54.84 points, to close at 20,172.46.

But the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index added 0.58 per cent, or 16.86 points, to 2,912.56. The Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, rose 1.22 per cent, or 23.68 points, to 1,970.38.
