WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A federal judge has reset a date to hear arguments over the government's request to limit who can see some evidence in the case of an alleged suicide bomb plot at a Wichita airport.

U.S. District Judge Monti Belot on Tuesday scheduled a Feb. 11 hearing in the case of Terry L. Loewen, a 58-year-old avionics technician facing terror-related charges.

Prosecutors are seeking an order restricting handling of evidence. The government has requested a hearing under the Classified Information Procedures Act, and also wants the case designated as ``complex'' to ease speedy trial concerns and give the parties more time to prepare for their cases.

Loewen has pleaded not guilty to charges including attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to give material support to al-Qaida.
