Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh is expected to return to power in Yemen shortly, according to spokespeople from the Gulf nation's ruling General People's Congress and various reports.

Saleh was flown to Saudi Arabia last week for medical treatment after tribal militants loyal to Saleh's opposition launched two missiles into his presidential compound, hitting a mosque during Friday prayers.

Saleh administration spokespeople have said that Saleh was lightly wounded, suffering scratches on the head. Analysts have speculated that his staff has worked to minimize the severity of his injuries.

Over the weekend, the United States and the United Kingdom tried to broker a deal with Saleh's representatives, offering financial incentives and immunities to have the 33-year president relinquish power.

In the wake of his departure, Yemeni protestors have been filmed dancing in the streets of Sana'a, Yemen's capital city, celebrating the fall of a regime renowned for repressing dissent.
