President Saleh Returns to Yemen

President Ali Abdullah Saleh returned to Yemen, Friday, about three months after an attempt on his life. He fled to Saudi Arabia, where he was treated for wounds suffered in the attempt.

Analysts had expected Saleh to stay in Saudi Arabia. He has clung to power, backing out of an agreement to step down following protests on the order of those that have brought about regime changes in Tunisia and Egypt.
