April 25 (Reuters) - Hong Kong stocks fell on Monday, tracking regional markets, with financial and IT stocks leading the decline.

The Hang Seng index fell 0.8 percent, to 21,304.44, while the China Enterprises Index lost 1.5 percent, to 8,986.33 points.

All sectors, with the exception of service shares, fell.
