Celebrations and gunfire ring out in Yemen

While pro-democracy protesters celebrate president's departure to Saudi Arabia, gun battles erupt in Sanaa and Taiz.

    There has been renewed deadly fighting in Yemen on Sunday, with heavy gunfire in Taiz as well as a rocket attack in the capital Sanaa, which led to at least two deaths.

    Ali Abdullah Saleh, Yemen's president, is seeking medical treatment in Saudi Arabia, after being injured in a rocket attack a day earlier.

    While pro-democracy protesters have been celebrating Saleh's departure as a victory against the government, the foreign ministry in Saudi Arabia has told Al Jazeera that Yemen's political future is an internal matter and that Saleh has said he will be back in the capital in a few days.
