Yemen's Saleh speaks out for first time since attack

Text size Aa Aa

He has not been seen in public since an assassination attempt on him in June. And the signs of the bomb attack were clear as Yemen’s President spoke in a pre-recorded TV interview, with heavily bandaged arms and hands.

Recovering in Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, Ali Abdullah Saleh said he had had more than eight operations.

Still in office despite months of protests against his rule, he told Yemen TV that he welcomed power sharing as long as it was within the constitution.
