SANAA - Yemen's opposition coalition said on Saturday it welcomed a Gulf Arab initiative for President Ali Abdullah Saleh to hand over power but would not take part in a national unity government.

"The opposition welcomes the initiative with the exception of the formation of a national unity government," said the current chairman of the opposition, Yassin Noman.

The opposition had been insisting that it would not accept a central element of the Gulf plan, immunity from prosecution for Saleh and his family.
