Yemen's Saleh remains in spotlight as PM named

Yemen's Vice-President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi has named a senior opposition figure, Mohammed Basindwa, as interim prime minister, but many questions remain over the role of President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

The president apparently transferred his powers to Mr Hadi under a deal to end months of deadly unrest, but still appears to be playing an active role in affairs.

His latest move was to offer an amnesty to those who "committed errors during the crisis".
