After U.S. visit, Yemen's Saleh returns to Sanaa

Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh has returned to his residence in Sanaa, a spokesman for the country's embassy in Washington said late Friday.

Saleh had been in the United States for medical treatment for wounds suffered in a June assassination attempt at his presidential palace during battles between government troops and tribal fighters.

He was expected to return to Yemen in time for the inauguration of the next president.

    Of course not! To answer your question,why would he want to live here? He made a good decision to step down , or face the true music of fighting in his country, so there is a smart ABDULLAH IN THIS WORLD AFTER ALL!
