Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh Appears Severely Burned and Frail In Television Speech

Saleh made his first televised speech since travelling to Saudi Arabia to seek medical treatment after a bomb exploded at his palace last month. Saleh said he had undergone more than eight operations, and his face appeared severely disfigured. He told the Yemeni people that he supports dialogue and power sharing “within the constitution,” but warned opposition groups that “there is no scope for any party to twist the arms of the other, this is the wrong solution.”
