SANAA - Yemen's opposition coalition said on Monday it backed a transfer of power to the Yemeni vice president, now acting leader, after Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh departed to Saudi Arabia at the weekend to undergo surgery.

"The opposition supports the complete transfer of power to the vice president. In the case this falls through, the opposition and the youth of the revolution have alternative options, meaning a transitional council," Sultan el-Atwani, a leading figure in the Joint Meeting Parties said.
