Tribal leader says Saleh will leave Yemen barefoot

SANAA, May 26 (Reuters) - A key Yemeni tribal leader said on Thursday there was no chance for mediation with President Ali Abdullah Saleh and vowed the entrenched leader would leave the country barefoot.

“No mediation works with Ali Abdullah Saleh, Ali Abdullah Saleh is a liar, liar, liar,” Sadiq al-Ahmar, the leader of the Hashed tribal federation, told Reuters.

“We are firm. He will leave this country barefoot.” (Reporting by Khaled al-Mahdy; Writing by Cynthia Johnston)
