[HONG KONG] Hong Kong shares fell in the first few minutes of trade on Monday following last week's gains, while Shanghai took a fresh hit on growing concerns about a flood of new listings that are draining liquidity from the market.

The Hang Seng Index eased 0.22 per cent, or 51.13 points, to 22,886.25.
