SANAA - Several top Yemeni officials injured in an attack on the presidential palace on Friday have been flown to neighboring Saudi Arabia for treatment, a medical source said on Saturday.

The speakers of both houses of parliament, the deputy prime minister and other officials were evacuated, the source said without offering details on the conditions of the officials.

Media reports on Arab broadcasters said the deputy prime minister suffered serious injuries when the palace was hit by shells.

Yemen's official media said President Ali Abdullah Saleh suffered minor injuries and seven people were killed.
