HONG KONG -- China's state media fired a fresh blast at HSBC Holdings on Tuesday over its alleged role in the arrest of Huawei Technologies Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou, despite repeated attempts by the bank to defend its conduct.

"In the political oppression of the U.S. government against Huawei, HSBC is the one that handed out the knife," said a commentary posted on the website, which is backed by the State Council Information Office and the China International Publishing Group.
