British city twins with Gaza City

I heard this on the Channel 4 tv news a few hours but I have been looking for something to link to on it. I googled "Gaza City" and all the articles were on the proposal, even the articles which post-dated the tv report. Finally I found one on the BBC:
Worcester backs Gaza twinning bid
A UK city council says it wants to twin with Gaza as a "humanitarian gesture"
Here's what City Councillor, Alan Amos, had to say:
"We are linking with the people, reaching out to these women and children and men who have been through so much."
I had to cut through a lot of article to get to that quote. The rest seems to be hostile questioning about the Council's support for terrorism. Go see.
