MUSCAT - Oman's Sultan Qaboos bin Said has pardoned 234 protesters arrested during weeks of demonstrations in the Gulf Arab state, the official news agency said on Wednesday.

Qaboos, a US ally who has ruled Oman for 40 years, promised a $2.6 billion spending package on Sunday after nearly two months of demonstrations inspired by a wave of protests that has spread across the Arab world.
