Yemen opposition: Saleh refuses to sign transition deal

SANAA, April 30 (Reuters) - Yemen's main opposition group on Saturday accused President Ali Abdullah Saleh of thwarting a Gulf-brokered deal that would see him cede power within a month.

"The authority has thwarted the deal. The Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council told us that Saleh refused to sign in his role as president. He said he wanted to sign as head of the ruling party, and this is a violation of the text of the Gulf initiative," the official, Sultan al-Atwani, told Reuters.
