Oscar Pistorius returns to court

Pretoria - Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius is due back in court on Tuesday for the first time since being freed on bail in February over the killing of his girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp.

The Pretoria magistrate's court could set a date for the trial of the double amputee, who is accused of murdering Steenkamp in the early hours of Valentine's Day at his upmarket home in Pretoria.

Tuesday's hearing comes just days after a British television channel broadcast leaked crime scene pictures showing the blood-spattered bathroom where Steenkamp was fatally shot multiple times through a locked door.
