Oman: Police disperse protests with tear gas and arrests

Omani riot police fired tear gas canisters as protesters took to the streets of major cities in the sultanate on Monday, in the most serious unrest to face Sultan Haitham bin Tariq since he came to power in January 2020.

The protests over job layoffs and poor economic conditions have drawn a major police presence in Sohar since Sunday, with protesters throwing stones at one point and police firing tear gas, Associated Press reported.

In videos shared online, Omani protesters in the north of the country can be seen fleeing as tear gas canisters fall around them on the streets near the labour ministry on Monday.
