Pistorius weeps at murder charge

Oscar Pistorius

South African Olympic and Paralympic star Oscar Pistorius wept in court as prosecutors said they would pursue a "premeditated murder" charge over the death of his girlfriend.

Model Reeva Steenkamp was shot dead at his home near Pretoria on Thursday.

Mr Pistorius held his head in his hands and broke down in tears as the charge was read out in the magistrates' court.
