ABU DHABI // A new judge has been appointed to run the trial in the case of a schoolgirl who died after being locked in a school bus.

Five people have been accused of negligence and other violations that caused the death.

Their third hearing was due on Sunday.

However, the Misdemeanour Court adjourned it until Tuesday because a new judge is looking at the case.

All five denied their charges in an earlier hearing.
