Last Updated: Monday, February 27, 2012 - 16:06

Sana’a: Aides to Ali Abdullah Saleh say that the ousted Yemeni president plans to go into exile in Ethiopia.

The aides said on Monday that the former president will leave Yemen within two days along with some of his family members.

A diplomat in Sana’a confirmed that arrangements had been made for Saleh`s arrival. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.
On Saturday, newly-inaugurated President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi was sworn in as president as part of a power-transfer deal that gave Saleh immunity from prosecution in exchange for stepping down. The deal aims to end a year of turmoil that left hundreds of protesters dead.
