RIYADH/SANAA - Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh will return from medical treatment in Saudi Arabia in days, the acting leader said on Monday as thousands celebrated what they hope will be a new era without him.

Diplomats and analysts feel Saleh's stay in Saudi Arabia, where he had surgery for shrapnel wounds suffered in an attack on his palace on Friday, might be prolonged as regional heavyweight Riyadh tries to broker a power transition deal to prevent the implosion of its neighbor.

International pressure has mounted on all parties to find a way to end clashes bringing Yemen to the brink of civil war due to worries it could become a failed state home to an al-Qaida wing next to the world's biggest oil exporter, Saudi Arabia.

A Saudi-brokered truce was holding in Sanaa after two weeks of fighting between Saleh's forces and a powerful tribal group in which more than 200 people were killed and thousands fled.
