Report: Yemen President Saleh to leave hospital soon

August 6, 2011 22:19

RIYADH - Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh will soon be discharged from the Saudi hospital where he has been recuperating from wounds suffered in an attack on his palace, but will remain in Riyadh for the time being, a Yemeni government source said on Saturday.

Saleh would be moved to Saudi government accommodation in the capital, the source told Reuters.

Saleh's prime minister, Ali Mohammed Megawar, injured in the same attack, left hospital and moved into similar accommodation earlier on Saturday, the source said.

Saleh was forced to seek treatment in Saudi Arabia last month after the attack on his palace last month capped weeks of fighting with a powerful tribal grouping that left parts of Yemen's capital Sanaa in ruins.
