Yemeni officials say ailing president Ali Abdullah Saleh will speak to media in the next day or so.

Saleh is receiving treatment in Saudi Arabia after suffering wounds when his palace was attacked earlier this month.

Meanwhile, demonstrations against Saleh's rule were seen in Sanaa's Taghyeer Square protesting against him.

Months of protests against Saleh's 33-year rule have sparked deadly clashes between the President's followers and opponents, bringing the country to a standstill and raising concerns that militants will exploit the unrest to gain a foothold in the impoverished state.

Last week, a Western diplomat told Reuters that Saleh was unlikely to return home soon, as Saudi Arabia and the United States continue to push for a transfer of power under an existing Gulf Arab proposal for a transition in Yemen.
