BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - The Uzbek national charged with terrorism-related crimes in Boise will not be in court this coming week.
    
US District Court judge Edward Lodge ruled that Fazliddin Kurbanov can skip Tuesday afternoon's hearing. Attorneys will discuss progress on the case along with prosecutors and the judge.

Kurbanov is accused of showing people how to make bombs over the internet. Prosecutors also say he was secretly working to facilitate attacks on public transportation systems.

The 30-year-old has been living in Boise since 2009 when he arrived in the United States, and has been working as a truck driver among other things.

He has pleaded not guilty to all charges, and faces a trial set to start on July 1, 2014.
