A federal judge on Tuesday agreed to delay trial until fall 2007 for seven men accused of plotting terrorist attacks against Chicago's Sears Tower and government buildings in other major cities. US District Judge Joan Lenard granted a motion by the defendants' lawyers to allow more time to prepare for trial and file defense motions. Jury selection had been scheduled to begin in March but is now delayed until early September. The seven men were arrested in June on a four-count grand jury indictment charging them with conspiracy and material support charges stemming from an alleged plot to blow up the Sears Tower and destroy FBI offices and other buildings in Miami, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and Washington.
