A PROFESSOR on Middle Eastern Policy will be the main speaker at the next public meeting of the Worcester Palestine Friendship group.

On Thursday, January 23, Rosemary Hollis will talk about her research into international political and security issues in the Middle East, European, EU, UK and US relations with the region and the international dimensions of regional conflicts.

There will also be Palestine produce for sale and a display of photos of the new children's library in Khan Younis, which the group contributed funds towards, alongside the Worcester-raised lecturer's talk.

Entry is free to the event which will be held from 7.30pm at St George's Catholic Church Parish Hall, in Sansome Walk.
