Marcel Mettelsiefen/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh left the United States on Thursday after being allowed into the country for medical treatment to injuries he sustained last year during an attack on his compound. A U.S. official confirms to ABC News that Saleh flew to Ethiopia, as few countries remain unwilling to take him in.

Longtime Vice President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi will be inaugurated as the country’s president on Monday, part of a two-year transition deal arranged by the Gulf countries that put an end to Saleh’s 33-year rule.
