MUSCAT - Hundreds of protesters took to the streets after Friday prayers in Oman's southern port of Salalah, in a peaceful rally calling for democratic reform and an end to corruption, activists and residents said.

Activists in the city said it was the fourth Friday protest in succession since scattered unrest began in the sultanate more than two months ago. Peaceful protesters, watched by a few dozen policemen, shouted "the people want an end to corruption," and "the people want reform".

Residents said between 300 and 400 hundred protesters took part in the protest, although some activists put the number at several thousand.
