Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh is out of intensive care after "successful" surgery in Riyadh, where he is being treated for bomb blast wounds, the official Saba news agency said.

The new agency reported that celebratory gunfire and fireworks erupted during Wednesday night as Saleh's supporters took to the streets "feting the success of the surgery... and his transfer from intensive care to a royal suite" in a military hospital in the Saudi capital.
