Anti-Govt. Clashes Kill 2, Injures 5 in Oman Updated: 2011-02-28 00:00:00 KST

As political unrest continues to spread throughout the Arab world, roughly 1-thousand protesters calling for political reforms took to the streets for a second day Sunday in the Omani city of Sohar.
A government official says police fired tear gas and rubber bullets when protesters set a police station on fire and that two people were killed and five others injured in the process.
Oman's leader Qaboos bin Said who has been in power for 41 years has tried to appease protesters after demonstrations in capital, Muscat more than a week ago.
Last week, he raised the minimum wage by more than 40 percent, and on Saturday he reshuffled his cabinet.
Protestors there are adamant, however, that the reforms go further…citing high unemployment and a poor education system.
