MUSCAT, Oman - Omani police fired tear gas at stone-throwing protesters in the industrial city of Sohar on Sunday who were demanding political reforms as unrest spread to the Gulf Arab sultanate, witnesses said.

They said scores of protesters had gathered for a second day of protest in Sohar and that police had cordoned them off. Protests were also happening in the southern town of Salalah where demonstrators have been camped out since Friday near the office of a provincial governor.
