CASA GRANDE, Ariz. (AP) - The trial of an Iraqi man charged with detonating an explosive device in Casa Grande is being postponed again.

No one was injured in the Nov. 30 blast outside a Social Security office.

Abdullatif Ali Aldosary's trial had been scheduled to start April 2 following an initial postponement from Feb. 5, but his lawyers recently said they need more time to prepare.

A federal judge in Phoenix then rescheduled the trial for June 4.

The Casa Grande Dispatch reports that prosecutors did not oppose postponing the trial.

Aldosary pleaded not guilty to charges of maliciously damaging federal property by means of explosives and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Authorities have declined to provide details about the case, including any potential motive.

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
