SALALAH, Oman - Some 3,000 protesters took to the streets after Friday prayers in Oman's southern port of Salalah in one of the biggest pro-reform demonstrations since scattered unrest began in the sultanate two months ago.

Instead of conducting prayers in a mosque, a preacher held them in a car park across the street from the governor's office, where about 3,000 worshipers had gathered. They marched through the streets after his sermon.

Omani demonstrators have focused their demands on better wages, jobs and an end to graft. Many are angered by the state's perceived unwillingness to prosecute ministers sacked for corruption in response to demonstrations in February.
