SANAA - Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh suffered minor injuries in an attack at the presidential palace on Friday but is in "good health", the deputy information minister told a news conference.
"His Excellency, the president, is in good health and has postponed (a planned) press conference ... due to scratches. He will recover, God willing," said Abdu al-Janadi.
"There is nothing that affects his health," he said, adding that an investigation on the attack has been launched.
The attack on the palace, which killed three guards and injured other government officials came as street fighting in Sanaa between Saleh's forces and a powerful tribal federation widened on Friday.
