Nikkei rebounds from 1-week closing low on US fiscal hopes

TOKYO, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average advanced in

by the top Republican in U.S. Congress that he was optimistic on
averting the so-called "fiscal cliff".
    The Nikkei rose 0.8 percent to 9,380.03, rebounding
from a one-week closing low hit on Wednesday, while the broader
Topix gained 0.8 percent to 777.29.
