Twin disasters overwhelm Japan

Children gathered in Gaza City on Thursday in solidarity with the victims of Japan's devastating earthquake.

Over 100 children held banners and slogans outside the Al-Nower education center to show their support for Japan, where more than 25,000 people are dead or missing.

Nour Breikh, 11, explained, "We are standing here to send a message of love to all the kids in Japan and to tell them that we are sad because of what happened to them."

Meanwhile, 12-year-old Haya Al-Kasas recalled Japan's support for residents of the Gaza Strip during Israel's devastating offensive in December 2008, when hundreds of Gazan children were killed by Israeli forces.

"Japanese kids were so kind to us when we were attacked during the Israeli war. They supported us and now it is our time to support them and pray for God to help them," she said.

Amal Khudeir, head of the center, said pupils had also sent emails offering their sympathies and condolences to Japanese children.
