The case of a Pakistani Christian accused of blasphemy against the Prophet Mohammed has been adjourned until June 12.

An alleged argument in March between Savan Masih and a Muslim friend led to violent clashes between Muslims and Christians and the destruction of hundreds of houses belonging to Christians in the Badami Bagh sector of Lahore.

The initial hearing took place on May 15, after which Masih told his supporters he is worried about his wife and three children and hopes for a fair trial and quick release.
