Iran moves trial for U.S. hikers

The trial date for two American hikers being held in Iran has been postponed to February 6, their lawyer said Sunday.

Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer's original court date was set for early November, but the trial has been postponed because one or more of the Americans did not show up for their court date, according to CNN.

The Associated Press reported that Sarah Shourd, who was freed in September, was apparently summoned to appear in court, according to Iranian authorities. She has not disclosed plans to return to Iran.

The hikers crossed an unmarked border into Iran, where they were arrested. They were later charged with espionage.
