BANGKOK, Oct 14 (Reuters) - Singapore's key index hit a more
than six-month low on Tuesday after weak economic data, while
most other Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower as concerns
about the health of the world economy unnerved investors in the
region. 
    The Straits Times Index fell 0.2 percent to
3,194.40, its lowest close since April 7. Shares of large cap
companies were among those actively traded, including CapitaLand
 and United Overseas Bank.
    The index erased its earlier gains and extended losses for a
third session after data showed Singapore's gross domestic
product in the third quarter rose a weaker-than-expected 1.2
percent from the previous quarter. 
 
    Stocks in the Philippines and Malaysia fell for a third
session, with the Philippine composite index ending at
its lowest level since Aug. 8 and the Kuala Lumpur composite
index at a more than eight-month closing low.
    The Philippines recorded net foreign selling worth 1.15
billion peso ($25.61 million), with Malaysia's net foreign
selling at 10.56 million ringgit ($3.23 million) and Indonesia's
at 490 billion rupiah ($40.15 million), stock exchange and
Thomson Reuters data showed.
