Yemeni Prime Minister Ali Mohammed Mujawar, who was injured in a bomb attack on June 3 along with President Ali Abdullah Saleh and many other officials, left the Saudi hospital on Saturday and is expected to stay in Riyadh for recuperation, while Saleh will remain in the hospital until he finishes treatment, a Yemeni government official told Xinhua.

“Prime Minister Mujawar, who was wounded along with President Saleh and other officials during the June 3 attack that targeted the presidential palace in Sanaa, left the Saudi hospital on Saturday for a Saudi government accommodation where he will stay for recuperation,” Mr. Saleh’s press secretary Ahmed al-Soufi told Xinhua.

“I have also phoned the Yemeni government officials accompanying President Saleh in the Saudi military hospital in Riyadh and they confirmed to me that President Saleh will remain in the hospital until he finishes his treatment,” al-Soufi added.

“There is no confirmation that President Saleh will leave the hospital very soon,” al-Soufi said.

The embattled president and other 87 high-ranking officials were hospitalized in Riyadh a day after the attack that left 12 of Mr. Saleh’s bodyguards and a government official dead.
