Yemen unrest: What next for President Saleh?

Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh is recovering from surgery in Saudi Arabia to remove shrapnel from his chest, Saudi officials say.

He was flown to the country on a Saudi medical flight on Saturday, a day after being wounded in an attack on his presidential compound in Sanaa.

Thousands of people in Yemen have been celebrating his departure after weeks of anti-government protests.

The BBC's Lina Sinjab in Sanaa said it remained unclear if Mr Saleh would return to Yemen.
