Yemen: President Saleh Says To Resign Soon


Yemen’s President Ali Abdullah Saleh said on Saturday he would leave power in the coming days. “I reject power and I will continue to reject it, and I will be leaving power in the coming days,” Saleh said in a speech on state television.

“I call on my supporters to persevere and to confront any challenge,” Saleh added. He stressed he won’t hand over powers to the opposition.
