Ali Abdullah Saleh has left the country to travel to the United States for medical treatment, Yemeni officials say. In a televised "farewell speech" he asked for forgiveness for "any shortcomings" during his 33-year rule.
Prominent Yemeni journalist Abdulelah Haider Shaye uncovered the US role in a drone strike that took the lives of civilians. In 2011, he was found guilty of being an al-Qaeda operative. He's now in jail -- and the U-S wants him to stay there.
