Even though the manual currently says that the first parameter has to be "One of DateTimeZone class constants", you may actually combine these constants:

<?php
  $a
= DateTimeZone::listIdentifiers(DateTimeZone::AFRICA); //gives africa time zones
 
$b = DateTimeZone::listIdentifiers(DateTimeZone::AMERICA); //gives american time zones
 
$c = DateTimeZone::listIdentifiers(DateTimeZone::AFRICA | DateTimeZone::AMERICA); //gives both african and american time zones
?>

Be sure to use |, not ||.
