[HONG KONG] Hong Kong stocks fell on Friday, in line with weakness in global markets due to nervousness ahead of a US jobs report and lingering uncertainty over a Greece aid deal with creditors.

The Hang Seng index fell 1.1 per cent, to 27,260.16, while the China Enterprises Index lost 1.5 per cent, to 13,914.61 points.

For the week, Hang Seng lost 0.6 per cent and the HSCE shed 1.3 per cent. By contrast, the two big mainland indexes had their best week since early December, rising more than 8 percent.

Most sectors fell, with energy stocks leading the way down amid declining oil prices. IT stocks also fell sharply.

Among the most actively traded stocks on Hong Kong's main board were CCT Land, down 4.5 per cent to HK$0.06 China Star Entertainment, up 4.8 per cent to HK$0.15 and Digital Domain, down 28.7 per cent to HK$0.77.
