WASHINGTON - Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh appears to have been injured last week by a bombing at a mosque inside his palace, not a rocket attack as first thought, US and Arab officials told Reuters.

It remains unclear whether the device might have been planted by someone from the outside who gained access to the mosque, or someone within Saleh's inner circle.

Saleh initially blamed the June 3 attack on an "outlawed gang" of his tribal foes.
