SANAA, Yemen, June 21 (UPI) -- Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, being treated in Saudi Arabia after a bombing attack on his compound, will return to Yemen Friday, a senior adviser said.

Saleh and other senior officials were injured June 3 in the attack on the mosque at the presidential palace and are receiving treatment in Saudi Arabia, CNN reported.

The attack came following months of unrest with protesters demanding an end to Saleh's rule.

Recent weeks have seen battles between Yemeni government troops and anti-government tribal forces and Islamic militants, including al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, CNN said.
