At the close, the Shanghai Composite index was down 26.94 points or 1 percent at 2,768.02. For the week, the index lost 4.6 percent, its worst performance since early February.
The blue-chip CSI300 index was down 1.65 percent. It lost 5.9 percent for the week.
The financial sector sub-index closed down 0.46 percent, the consumer staples sector ended 2.1 percent lower, the real estate index ended down 1.8 percent and healthcare sub-index closed 3.34 percent lower.
