HONG KONG - Hong Kong shares plunged 2.38 percent by lunch Tuesday, in line with a regional sell-off after heavy losses on Wall Street sparked by weaker-than-expected US manufacturing data.



The benchmark Hang Seng Index fell 524.36 points to 21,511.06 on turnover worth HK$39.75 billion ($5.13 billion).
