    Oman clashes: Two killed during protests in Gulf state

    Two people have been reported killed in clashes between security forces and protesters in the Gulf state of Oman.

    Hundreds of people had gathered for a second day of protests calling for political reforms, in the industrial city of Sohar.

    At least five people were wounded when police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at the protesters, reports say.

    Until now, Oman had mostly been spared the unrest which has affected other Arab states in recent months.

    Demonstrations are also taking place in the southern town of Salalah, according to Reuters news agency.
