PHOENIX (AP) -- A new trial date has been set for the Iraqi man charged with detonating a homemade explosive device outside a Social Security Administration building in Arizona.

Abdullatif Ali Aldosary's trial date was moved from Feb. 5 to April 2.

Authorities say the 47-year-old researched bomb-making materials and gathered chemicals before detonating an explosive outside the Social Security office in Casa Grande on Nov 30.

No one was injured in the blast.

Aldosary has pleaded not guilty to charges of maliciously damaging federal property by means of explosives and being a felon in possession of a firearm. 

Authorities have declined to provide details about the case, including any potential motive and whether they suspect Aldosary was working alone or with others.
