SANAA - President Ali Abdullah Saleh was recovering from head wounds on Saturday, officials said, a day after an attack on his palace escalated a conflict that has brought Yemen to the brink of civil war.

Yemeni and Saudi officials dismissed reports on Arabiya TV that Saleh had left for neighboring Saudi Arabia, where six wounded officials, including the prime minister, have gone for medical treatment.
