Taylor Trial Delayed til June 4

THE HAGUE, Jan 26 (Reuters) - The U.N.-backed Special Court for Sierra Leone has postponed the start of former Liberian President Charles Taylor's war crimes trial to June 4 to give the defence more time to prepare, the court said on Friday.

The court had set April 2 as a tentative start date for the trial but defence lawyers requested more time, saying they would not be able to start before September due to a large amount of documents and work to be done.
