Yemen: What is next?

Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh is in the Saudi capital to receive treatment for neck and chest wounds.

    He resisted months of mass protests, calling for him to step down, but a rocket attack has now forced Ali Abdullah Saleh to leave Yemen, and hand power to his deputy.

    Saleh is in Saudi Arabia for treatment to injuries he suffered in the attack on his palace. Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, the vice president, has taken over as acting president, and commander of the armed forces.

    So, what is next for Yemen's rulers and its opposition?
