HONG KONG -- Chinese stocks closed near their lowest level in more than two-and-a-half years on Wednesday, victims of worries over the U.S.-China trade war, slower economic growth and weak investor sentiment.

The Shanghai stock market closed a hair above its 2016 low, with the Shanghai Composite Index ending the day at 2,656.11, down 0.3%, less than a point from its closing level of 2,655.66 on Jan. 28, 2016.
