"Omani police fired rubber bullets at stone-throwing demonstrators demanding political reform on Sunday, killing two people, and protesters set government buildings and cars ablaze, witnesses said. The trouble in the industrial town of Sohar was a rare sign of discontent in the normally sleepy Gulf Arab sultanate and followed a wave of pro-democracy protests across the Arab world."
