SANAA (Reuters) - Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh will make a media appearance within the next 48 hours, his media secretary said Sunday.

"The president will appear within the next 48 hours despite our fear that the burns on his features and on different parts of his body will be an obstacle given that his appearance will not be as the media expects it," Ahmed al-Sufi said in a statement.

Saleh was forced to leave Yemen for treatment in a Saudi hospital after an attack on his palace earlier this month.
