CHICAGO (WLS) -- A federal judge has pushed back the trial of Adel Daoud, a 20-year-old suburban man who's accused of trying to ignite a bomb outside a Chicago bar.

Attorneys for Daoud asked for the delay and a judge granted it at hearing Wednesday. The trial had been scheduled for next month. It will now begin July 27, 2015.

The judge in the case said she reluctantly changed the date, but added she understood complexities of the case require more preparation time.
