Pistorius case: Judge rules prosecutors can appeal

Judge Thokozile Masipa has ruled that prosecutors can appeal against the "culpable homicide" conviction of Oscar Pistorius.

Pistorius's lawyers had opposed the appeal request.

Prosecutors are seeking a murder conviction and the case will now go before South Africa's Supreme Court of Appeal.
