MIAMI (AP) - Trial has been postponed indefinitely in the South Florida case of two Pakistani-born brothers accused of plotting to set off bombs in New York City.

A Miami federal judge on Thursday granted the delay requested by prosecutors and defense lawyers. Trial for Raees Alam Qazi and Sheheryar Alam Qazi had been scheduled to begin in early November but is now off until sometime next year.

One reason is that defense lawyers need more time to go through FBI recordings, video and other evidence. In addition, prosecutors intend to charge the brothers with assaulting two U.S. Marshals earlier this year.

The Qazi brothers have pleaded not guilty to several terror-related charges filed in 2012. Authorities say they plotted to blow up New York landmarks to avenge deaths overseas from U.S. drones.
