RIYADH (Reuters) - A small number of Saudis gathered at the interior ministry in Riyadh on Sunday, demanding the release of detainees, an activist said, two days after a planned day of protests fizzled amid a heavy police presence.

A Reuters correspondent saw a group of at least a dozen men in front of the ministry. Security forces looked on but did not immediately intervene. (Reporting by Ulf Laessing; Writing by Cynthia Johnston)
