"Yemeni Opposition Vow To Prevent Saleh’s Return From Saudi Arabia"

Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh was taken to Saudi Arabia this weekend for medical treatment after opposition forces shelled his presidential palace. Saleh reportedly suffered “extensive” injuries. Sources said he has burns to 40 percent of his body and his injuries will require him to undergo cosmetic surgery. Yemen’s acting leader, Vice President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, said Salah would return home “in the coming days,” however, as the Guardian reports, “Yemeni opposition forces have pledged to prevent Saleh’s return.” (HT: Laura Rozen)
