Wikileaks founderJulian Assange’s US extradition case has been delayed as coronavirus restrictions prevent lawyers from attending court.

Assange is being held at a London prison as he fights American efforts to make him stand trial for conspiring to hack government computers and espionage.

A court adjourned the case to May after a week of hearings in February.

Since that time, Britain has imposed restrictions to combat the virus outbreak which is making normal court proceedings difficult.

A new date for the hearings will be confirmed on May 4.
