Ousted President to leave to Ethiopia

27/2/2012 -

Alsahwha.net Yemen's ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh will leave to Ethiopia this week, media sources quoted ruling party officials as saying on Monday.

 The sources said Saleh was under increased pressure to leave, as Yemenis worry his presence will undermine efforts of the new president, Abdurabu Mansur Hadi.

Saleh and Hadi appeared at the presidential palace Monday for a former handover of power ceremony amid cautious optimism and ongoing threats of violence in the country.

News reports stated on Monday that the UN Security Council threatened to freeze the assets of Saleh and his families in case he does not leave Yemen, hinting that he faced heavy pressures form Arab and western countries.
