Hong Kong: Hong Kong shares fell on Monday, while Shanghai lost almost one percent as dealers in China fret over a crackdown on speculative investing.

The Hang Seng Index lost 0.60 percent, or 180.13 points, to close at 29,686.19.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index fell 0.94 percent, or 31.59 points, to 3,322.23 and the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, dropped 1.56 percent, or 29.90 points, to 1,892.82.
