Saleh says ready to leave power "with dignity"-TV

DUBAI (Reuters) – Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh said he would be prepared to leave power “with dignity” even within hours, Al Arabiya television reported on Saturday.

Saleh, however, denied that a deal on power transfer was expected on Saturday, Al Arabiya said, citing remarks made by the Yemeni leader in an interview with the television channel.

Saleh also said that the opposition had raised its demands after he launched a power transfer initiative, Al Arabiya said.
