Hong Kong stocks end sharply down

Hong Kong stocks tumbled Thursday in line with a sell-off across Asia and Europe, owing to concerns about rising virus cases and a stalement in US stimulus talks.

The Hang Seng Index sank 2.06%, or 508.55 points, to 24 158.54.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index fell 0.26%, or 484.21 points, to 3 332.18, while the Shenzhen Composite Index on China's second exchange shed 0.70%, or 16.01 points to 2 274.39.
