Orhan Pamuck - update

The trial of Orhan Pamuck has been put off until February.

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - The trial of best-selling Turkish novelist Orhan Pamuk was adjourned on Friday amid mounting concern in the European Union that the case could challenge freedom of expression.
A judge in Istanbul said the trial would restart on February 7, 2006, to give the Justice Ministry time to decide whether the case was in line with judicial procedures.
