TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - A federal judge in Ohio has postponed a hearing on whether one of four men accused of raising money for a former al-Qaida leader should go back to prison.

Federal prosecutors want the judge to revoke the bond for Sultane Room Salim.

Court officials say Salim has twice violated terms of his release, including briefly leaving a Columbus mosque during prayer services while he was out on bond.

The judge on Friday delayed the hearing until next week.

Salim was released from prison in November. A judge ordered him to live with his wife and mother in the Cambridge area of eastern Ohio while awaiting a potential trial.

His attorneys have denied his involvement in what prosecutors say was an effort to raise money for former al-Qaida leader Anwar al-Awlaki.
