Yemen's Saleh 4th Arab Leader to Fall?

Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh has flown to Saudi Arabia allegedly to sign a deal that would end his 33-year reign of power. The agreement, brokered by the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) guarantees the president, his family and close aides will be safe and won't be prosecuted by subsequent governments after he steps down, Yemen state television reported Wednesday.
