The Olympic torch, symbol of this summer's 2008 Games in Beijing, arrived on Monday for an expected trouble-free relay in Oman, its sole stop in the Middle East on its way to China.

The flame landed in Muscat around 05:30 am (0130 GMT), while its relay is scheduled to take place in the evening.

Contrary to most of the other cities where the torch relay caused confrontations between police and anti-Chinese protestors, Muscat is expected to be a quiet stop.
