(03-04 09:43)

Stocks in Hong Kong gained 0.18 percent in the first few minutes of trade as investors picked up bargains following the previous day's sell-off that was fuelled by fears of a Ukraine-Russia conflict. The benchmark Hang Seng Index added 45.50 points to 22,542.17.
In Shanghai, shares were down in morning tradey, tracking overnight losses on Wall Street. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index slid 0.64 percent, or 13.27 points, to 2,061.97.
The Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, fell 0.77 percent, or 8.54 points, to 1,100.87.—AFP
