The English town of Worcester is seeking to twin itself with Gaza City in a gesture of solidarity with the Palestinian people, an official there said Thursday. Councilor Alan Amos told Britain's Channel 4 News the twinning would draw attention to what he called the "dreadful occupation" and blockade that Gazans had suffered. The BBC says Worcester City Council backed the move on Tuesday. It was unclear what the practical ramifications of the twinning would be or whether authorities in Worcester, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) northwest of London, had discussed their plans with their counterparts in Gaza. A number for Amos could not immediately be located and calls to the city council went unanswered late Thursday.
