Sanaa: Yemen`s official news agency is
reporting four of the top leadership injured in the rocket
attack on the presidential palace are in Saudi Arabia for
treatment.

Today`s report says the prime minister, the
president`s top security adviser, and the two heads of
parliament were already in the neighboring kingdom. Officials
had said at least the security adviser was in serious
condition.

Rockets smashed into a mosque on the presidential
palace grounds, where President Ali Abdullah Saleh was praying
with senior officials. Saleh was lightly wounded. In a brief
audio statement, he blamed "outlaw" tribesmen for the attack.

The strike was a dramatic escalation of fighting
between Saleh`s forces and rival tribesmen in the capital.
