WASHINGTON - Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh was injured much more seriously than first reported in a weekend rocket attack on his palace, a US official said on Tuesday, raising further questions about his continued rule.

Saleh, who is receiving medical treatment in Saudi Arabia, was initially said to have received a shrapnel wound, and his vice president was quoted on Monday as saying the president would return to Yemen within days.

But the US official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Saleh was in more serious condition than that, with burns over roughly 40 percent of his body.
