Tuesday, June 7: Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, suffers 40% burns on his body alongwith a collapsed lung after he got wounded in an attack at the mosque in his compound in the capital Sanaa, as fighting continues between the government and armed tribes on Friday, June 3.

Earlier Saleh was injured and received treatment in a military hospital. But now Saleh suffers a more serious condition. The US government officials raised a crucial question whether the embattling leader would return to the conflict in Yemen or not, that is uncertain.

The Yemeni investigation is still going on how did the attack come. It wasn't a rocket or mortar attack, it wasn't even a suicide bombing as said by one of the diplomats. According to Western diplomats, the attack came from a bomb.

Earlier Saleh blamed the Tribals for the attack. The govt-tribal force clash has reached its height since weeks in Yemen, where thousands of protesters have been forcing Saleh to give up power since January.

Joint Meeting Parties spokesman Mohammed Qahtan said that the yemeni citizens would leave no stone unturned to prevent Saleh from re-entering the country.
