WASHINGTON - Yemen's outgoing president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, returned to his home in Sanaa late on Friday after receiving medical treatment in the United States, a spokesman for Yemen's embassy in Washington said.

Saleh, 69, arrived in the United States in January to receive treatment for wounds inflicted during an assassination attempt last year.

Saleh is a long-time US ally, but his 33-year rule of Yemen formally ended on Tuesday after an uncontested election. His deputy, Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, is taking over as president.
