RIYADH - The speaker of Yemen's appointed upper house of parliament died in Saudi Arabia on Monday morning from injuries suffered in a June assassination attempt on President Ali Abdullah Saleh, a government official with Saleh in Riyadh said.

Abdulaziz Abdulghani is the first senior political figure to have died from the explosion in Saleh's palace mosque which forced the president and a number of his aides to seek medical treatment in Saudi Arabia.
