    Yemen's Ali Abdullah Saleh stepped down after 33 years at the helm on Monday, making him the fourth veteran Arab leader to fall in a year of mass pro-democracy demonstrations that have rocked the region.

    Standing before a crowd of parliamentarians, tribal leaders and foreign dignitaries at the presidential palace in Sanaa, Saleh formally ceded power to his deputy Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi, pledging to support his efforts to "rebuild" a country still reeling from months of violence.

    The new leadership and the retired one is the same thing. Aides to Ali Abdullah Saleh said Monday that the ousted Yemeni president plans to go into exile in Ethiopia, as pressures mounted on him to depart the country for fear of sparking new cycles of violence.

    He who forced out Ali Nasser Muhamad by protest now has to taste his own bitter pill.
