Yemen's wounded president visits injured officials in Saudi hospital

SANAA, July 17 (Xinhua) -- Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who is being treated in Saudi Arabia for bomb injures, paid visits Sunday to some other wounded Yemeni officials in the Saudi Military Hospital in Riyadh, the state-run Saba news agency reported.

The officials were wounded along with Saleh in the June 3 bomb attack on Sanaa presidential palace and were hospitalized in Riyadh.

"President Saleh visited Prime Minister Ali Mujawar, Shura Council Chairman Abdul-Aziz Abdul-Ghani and Sanaa governor No'aman Dwaid," Saba said.

"During the visits, Saleh reiterated his appreciation to the Saudi leadership for the care, saying it reflected the deep-rooted relations between Yemen and Saudi Arabia," said the report.

Saleh also "highly valued the Saudi attitude of supporting Yemen's unity, security and stability, as well as its support for the Yemeni people under any circumstances and in all areas," it said.

Saleh, who was injured by a bomb attack on his presidential palace on June 3, has faced six-month-long protests across the country, demanding an end to his 33-year rule.
