SANAA, Yemen – Yemen's president said Saturday he will sign a proposal by Gulf Arab mediators for him to step down, but he condemned the deal as a "coup" and warned al-Qaida will take control of the country.

He has backed out before but we will have to see tomorrow if he keeps his word this time.

On Saturday, he said, "we accept the initiative to stop bloodshed," and an official statement said he would sign the deal Sunday. It grants him immunity from prosecution if he leaves office within 30 days.

Plus, the opposition have already signed the deal today.

Representatives of Yemen's opposition political parties, who have supported the deal for weeks, signed it on Saturday in the presence of U.S. and European Union ambassadors, said a Foreign Ministry official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak to the press.

Didnt Lindsey Williams say Yemen was the next to fall?
