A woman walks past an electronic stock board showing the Hong Kong share index outside a local bank in Hong Kong Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2013. Asian stock markets were mostly lower Tuesday despite an upbeat report on U.S. service industries that are the main driver of growth in the world's No. 1 economy. Hong Kong's Hang Seng dropped 1.6 percent to 21,872.03, dragged down by HSBC Holdings, which plunged 4.7 percent a day after the bank reported weaker-than-expected revenue for the first half of the year.
