SANAA - Yemen said on Monday it arrested several people for attempting to kill President Ali Abdullah Saleh, whose unresolved political fate has brought the impoverished neighbor of rich Gulf states to the brink of civil war.

The official newspaper of Saleh's party said several people suspected of involvement in an attempt to kill him had been arrested and were being questioned, in an apparent reference to the attack that wounded Saleh and members of his cabinet.

It said interrogations had revealed "important, grave" facts "related to al-Mushtarak" -- an element of the Arabic name for the Joint Meetings coalition of opposition parties seeking his immediate departure. The paper provided no further details.
