By Faitk Al-Rodaini
Sana'a, February 25, 2012- President Ali Abdullah Saleh arrived in Sana'a Friday night after more than three weeks in the U.S. for medical treatment from wounds sustained in a June assassination attempt.
The 69-year-old Saleh, Yemen's ruler for 33 years, has pledged to attend his successor's inauguration
Yemen on Tuesday voted to replace Saleh with Vice President Abed Rabo Mansour Hadi, who is expected to be sworn in Saturday. He takes over after months of uncertainty over whether Saleh would step down in the face of popular protests that plunged Yemen into crisis.
