In the longer term, this could also hurt places like Australia, which supplies a lot of China's raw materials.
The most at risk include : tech hardware manufacturer Qualcomm and restaurant operator Yum, (fast food stalwarts KFC, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut) both generated more than half their sales from china last year.

It's ordinary Chinese that have been the biggest victims of the crash.

Millions of them piled into the market after regulations were loosened on margin trading -- borrowing money to invest.

- Stocks only make up 15% to 20% of Chinese households' wealth.
