Oscar Pistorius looks 'very much a broken man'

The defence in Oscar Pistorius's bail hearing has denied his client is a flight risk, saying Mr Pistorius could not simply slip through an airport unnoticed.

The magistrate is expected to announce on Friday whether or not he is granting bail to Mr Pistorius, who is charged with the pre-meditated murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Peter Biles, reporting from outside the court in Pretoria, says Mr Pistorius has seemed in a "fragile emotional state" much of the week.
