Yemeni state television said on Thursday it would broadcast "within next few hours" a recorded speech of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who is being treated in Riyadh for wounds he sustained in an attack on his presidential palace earlier last month.

The channel gave no further details.

The 69-year-old president, who has faced six-month-long protests requiring his resignation, was airlifted to the Saudi capital on June 4, the day after he was attacked in what government officials said "an assassination attempt". He has not been seen in public since then.
