Yemen awaits possible Saleh return after surgery

SANAA/ADEN - Supporters of injured Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh fired shots into the air on Thursday to celebrate reports he would soon return to Yemen, which is torn by fighting between his backers and opponents.
"He has overcome the health difficulties after successful surgery to remove shrapnel ... Sources expected him to return soon after completing his recovery and treating some light surface burns," the government website 26 September said.
Wounded on Friday when what US and Arab officials say was a bomb in his palace rather than rockets as first thought, Saleh is being treated in the Saudi capital Riyadh.
