Yemen's president in surgery for chest wounds

RIYADH (Reuters) - Yemen’s President Ali Abdullah Saleh was undergoing surgery Sunday to remove shrapnel from his chest at a Saudi Arabian medical facility, a medical source told Reuters.

Saleh, who has ruled Yemen for nearly 33 years, went to Saudi Arabia a day earlier after being wounded in an attack on Friday at his presidential palace in Sanaa.
