Return of wounded president Ali Abdullah Saleh still uncertain
Friday 01 July 2011
Yemen's president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, was so severely injured in an assassination attempt that it is uncertain when he will return to the country, his Vice-President has said. Mr Saleh was wounded in a bomb attack on his palace in early June amid months of protests against his three-decade rule, and is being treated in Saudi Arabia.
Vice-President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi told CNN that he saw Mr Saleh after the attack with a piece of wood between his ribs and burns to his face, arms and upper body. Mr Hadi said no one could tell when Mr Saleh might return.
