Pelosi urges U.S. sanctions after China passes Hong Kong security law

WASHINGTON, June 30 (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for sanctions and other steps against China after Beijing on Tuesday passed its sweeping national security law for Hong Kong, saying the "brutal" law would "frighten, intimidate and suppress" those peacefully seeking freedom.

"We must consider all tools available, including visa limitations and economic penalties," the Democratic leader of the U.S. House of Representatives said in a statement.
