Small Saudi protest outside interior ministry in Riyadh
Dozens of people have protested outside Saudi Arabia's interior ministry in the capital, Riyadh.

They demanding the release of people detained by the government.

Reports quoting witnesses said riot police stopped the crowd forcing their way into the building, and arrested around a dozen people.

King Abdullah has responded to petitions and small protests by offering improved wages and benefits, but not political reforms.

Reports say some demonstrators argued with police but they were not shouting slogans or holding protest signs.

And it keeps spreading

Oh and add Syria too.
