WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday there is strong, bipartisan report in Congress for legislation pushing more sanctions to punish North Korea after it conducted a nuclear test this week.

Pelosi said Republicans, who control the House of Representatives, are likely to move a bill as early as next week and that Democrats will support it.
