OSCAR PISTORIOUS HIDES HIS FACE AS HE IS LED AWAY BY SOUTH AFRICAN POLICE OFFICERS

Olympic double amputee sprint star, Oscar Pistorius has been charged by the South African police Thursday with the Valentine’s Day murder of his model girlfriend, who appeared to be shot four times with a gun purportedly owned by the popular athlete.

Police played down reports suggesting the 30-year-old blonde model, Reeva Steenkamp, was mistaken for a burglar, and said she had died after suffering wounds to the head and hand in the shooting in the early hours of Thursday.

Twenty-six-year-old Pistorius — known globally as “Blade Runner” because of his carbon fibre prostheses — was to spend the night in jail before appearing in court early Friday to face murder charges.
