13 May 2021, 20:42 GMT+10

Hong Kong stocks tumbled Thursday along with other global markets after a forecast-beating US inflation reading ramped up fears that the Federal Reserve will be forced to hike interest rates sooner than expected.

The Hang Seng Index dived 1.81%, or 512.37 points, to 27 718.67.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index lost 0.96%, or 33.22 points, to 3 429.53, while the Shenzhen Composite Index on China's second exchange dropped 0.81%, or 18.51 points, to 2 253.30.
