Mainland Chinese indices fell as the Shenzhen composite and Shanghai composite gave up 1.3% and 1.4% respectively.

Meanwhile, in Hong Kong the Hang Seng index shed 0.85 shares of Fosun International fell by 0.9%, Fosun being the largest shareholder of British travel agent firm Thomas Cook which has just collapsed following a failed last-ditch attempt to rescue the company.
