"Saleh Taken To Saudi Arabia For Medical Treatment"

Saudi officials said that Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Salah was taken to Saudi Arabia for medical treatment one day after an attack on his presidential palace left him and other members of his ruling circle injured. Salah reportedly has shrapnel near his heart. The New York Times reports that “Yemeni officials have insisted that the president was only lightly injured. But he did not make an expected appearance on television on Friday, instead releasing an audiotape in which he slurred his words, suggesting that he might be sedated.”
