The trial of American hikers Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer, who have been held in Iran for nearly two years under accusations of spying and illegally crossing the border, has been postponed, Al Arabiya reported via Twitter on Wednesday.

The two men had been scheduled to begin court proceedings today. Sarah Shroud, a fellow hiker who was arrested with Fattal and Bauer but released on $500,000 bail last September, did not plan to return to Iran for the trial.

The three hikers were in the northern region of Iraq when they allegedly crossed the border into Iran, which is notoriously unmarked. All three have maintained their innocence.
