Yemen’s Saleh Arrives in U.S.

Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh arrived in the United States Saturday night to receive medical treatment for injuries he suffered when his presidential palace was bombed in June. The Yemeni Foreign Press Office did not disclose his location, but Saleh had said he would seek treatment in New York. The president gave a farewell speech last week after he agreed to give up power in exchange for immunity, and promptly left the country, claiming he would return.
