Pelosi speaks at the U.S. Capitol in Washington

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in a statement on China's trial of Martin Lee and other activists released on Monday, called for considering strict consequences for Beijing's crackdown on the once semi-autonomous Hong Kong.

"The Chinese government must know that the world is watching its strangulation of human rights – and that we must put all options on the table for holding China accountable," Pelosi said.
