My sources in Sohar tell me that the police broke up the crowds at the Globe Rounadbout in the early hours of the morning, and many were arrested. You can follow the details and photographs at Jillian & Dan's, (Jillian first = ladies first), our only source of news from Sohar. So, it looks like authorities are finally (trying) to put an end to the sit-ins/strikes/demonstrations around Oman. The three major remaining sit-ins have been at Sohar, Muscat, and Salalah. The Salalah sit-in started on Friday February 25th. Today is March 29th. One of my friends was at the sit-in just a few moments ago and claims the protesters plan to remain in their place. Judging by the photos on Jillian & Dan's, I wouldn't be surprised if we're next. . .
