Oscar Pistorius 'betrays no emotion' in court

Help

South African athlete Oscar Pistorius has appeared in court for the first time since he was freed on bail over the killing of his girlfriend.

After a brief hearing in Pretoria, the magistrate agreed to a request from both prosecution and defence to postpone the hearing until August.

Mr Pistorius shot Reeva Steenkamp through the bathroom door of his house in Pretoria on 14 February.

He denies committing murder, saying he mistook her for an intruder

Milton Nkosi reports from Pretoria, where he says the athlete was "almost emotionless".
