Aug 13 (Reuters) - European shares fell on Tuesday, as a slew of economic and geopolitical worries including Italy and Argentina's political uncertainty and unrest in Hong Kong, compelled investors to take refuge in safe harbors like bonds and gold.
The pan-European STOXX 600 index fell 0.3% by 0715 GMT, with the bank-heavy Milan and Madrid indexes leading losses.
Markets, already reeling from fears that the United States and China may not end their bitter trade-war anytime soon, were distressed further as Argentina's currency crashed, unrest in Hong Kong intensified and Italy's political worries deepened.
The dour mood in general has seen bond yields dive and banks take a beating, with European lenders leading sector declines.
