Nov 24 (Reuters) - Hong Kong stocks fell on Tuesday, led by resources shares after metal prices touched multi-year lows.

The Hang Seng index ended down 0.4 percent at 22,587.63 points, while the China Enterprises Index lost 0.7 percent, to 10,156.63 points.

Most sectors fell, with resources shares leading the decline. An index tracking raw material stocks fell nearly 1 percent, underperforming the market.
