Hong Kong shares slide amid trade worries, city unrest

Property shares drop as local interbank rates surge

HONG KONG (Nikkei Markets) -- Hong Kong shares fell for the first time in five days on Wednesday, weighed down by losses for Chinese companies amid mounting concerns over Sino-American trade tensions while protests in the city affect trading activity.

The Hang Seng Index fell 1.7% to 27,308.46 after rising 3.8% over the past four trading days. Turnover on the main board was at 76.99 billion Hong Kong dollars ($9.84 billion), lower than usual.
