[HONG KONG] Hong Kong stocks slipped on Wednesday, taking cues from weak mainland markets, even as property shares rose on encouraging China home price data.

Market sentiment remained fragile, amid lingering anxiety over terrorism in the wake of Friday's deadly attacks in Paris, falls in global commodity prices, and the prospect of United States interest rates rising soon.

The Hang Seng index fell 0.3 per cent, to 22,188.26, while the China Enterprises Index lost 0.2 per cent, to 10,055.28 points.
