South Africa: Pistorius to sell house to fund legal costs

South African Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius is understood to be selling his house to cover the spiralling costs of his murder trial.

He has not returned to the property in Pretoria, since his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was shot dead there in February last year.

It is thought to be worth around 330-thousand euros.

The athlete acknowledges he fatally shot Steenkamp, but says it was a mistake.
