Oscar Pistorius trial: Judge gives her verdict

South African athlete Oscar Pistorius has been found guilty of culpable homicide after he shot dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Judge Thokozile Masipa said the athlete acted "negligently" when he fired shots through a toilet door but in the "belief that there was an intruder".

She said the state had failed to prove he intended to kill Reeva Steenkamp.

Mr Pistorius faces up to 15 years in jail.
