Yemen Opposition To Approve Gulf Mediation Deal

SANAA, Yemen -- A coalition of Yemen's opposition parties say they will soon sign a deal mediated by neighboring Gulf countries for the president to step down.

Mohammed Salem Bassindwa, head of opposition's national dialogue council, told the Associated Press Tuesday that he expected the deal to be signed in the "next 24 hours."

The deal provides for President Ali Abdullah Saleh to hand over power to his deputy in return for immunity from prosecution for him and his family.
