Gulf mediator to Yemen opposition: Deal is agreed

SANAA (Reuters) - The head of a bloc of wealthy Gulf states seeking to mediate Yemen's political crisis told the opposition that President Ali Abdullah Saleh has agreed to sign a transition deal on Sunday, an opposition official said.

"(Abdullatif) al-Zayani informed the opposition of the agreement of the president to sign the initiative without any changes on Sunday," the official said.
