BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The assault trial of a Libyan refugee living in Boulder has been pushed back to February at the request of her attorneys.

Iman al-Obeidi, who made headlines during Libya’s civil war when she said she was raped by Moammar Gadhafi’s troops, was set to go to trial Monday on charges of second-degree assault, third-degree assault and obstructing a police officer. The Daily Camera reports (https://bit.ly/1pm5C29 ) her trial is now scheduled to begin Feb. 17.

The woman, now known as Eman Ali, was granted asylum in 2011 and settled in Boulder. She’s accused of pouring a beer on a woman and later throwing a glass at her head at a bar in February. Ali has pleaded not guilty.

She was arrested twice before on allegations of excessive drinking.
