Oscar Pistorius verdict: Reports and reaction

Watch the latest BBC reports and reaction after South African Judge Thokozile Masipa found Oscar Pistorius guilty of culpable homicide.

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 his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in the early hours of Valentine's Day 2014.

The Olympic double-amputee sprinter faces up to 15 years in jail.

He was also found guilty on a charge of negligently handling a firearm that went off in a restaurant.
