The Yemeni opposition, meanwhile, will start talks on Monday with Vice President Mansur Hadi about a transfer of power, Al Arabiya reported, citing the head of the Joint Meeting opposition bloc.
Health Minister Abdul Karim Rasei, who visited Mr. Saleh on Saturday, said the embattled president would “very soon speak directly through the media to the Yemeni people,” the website 26sep.net reported.
President Saleh, who has faced four months of protests calling for his ouster, was flown to Riyadh for treatment a day after the explosion.
On Saturday, an informed Yemeni source in Riyadh said the 69-year-old leader was in poor condition and suffering breathing problems, according to Agence-France Presse.
But 26sep.net reported that Mr. Rasei had “spoken with the president, who seemed in good health,” adding that President Saleh and other senior officials wounded in the attack were all out of danger.
Eleven people were killed and 124 others wounded, according to Yemeni officials, in the impoverished country of 24 million people.
