DUBAI - Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, recovering from an assassination attempt in Riyadh, is in "generally good health", Saudi Arabia's foreign minister said on Tuesday.

Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal was speaking at a joint news conference with the British foreign minister in the Saudi city of Jeddah, broadcast on Al Arabiya television.

Saleh suffered severe burn wounds in a bomb blast at his compound last month. Some diplomats in Sanaa have said there is a slim chance Saleh could return soon to Yemen, facing a severe political impasse after months of protests demanding his ouster.
