Australia shares drop to 4-month low, banks and miners suffer

(Updates to close)

SYDNEY, June 9 (Reuters) - Australian shares fell to their lowest in four months on Tuesday, led by losses in the mining and financial sectors on worries about China’s economy.

The S&P/ASX 200 index slipped 0.5 percent to 5,471.3 to show a sixth consecutive session of losses. The benchmark has dropped more than 5 percent so far this month.

New Zealand’s benchmark NZX 50 index eased 0.4 percent or 23.7 points to finish the session at 5862.10. (Editing by Eric Meijer)
