JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Jailed South African track star Oscar Pistorius will appeal his increased prison sentence of 13 years and five months at South Africa's Constitutional Court, Eye Witness News reported on Tuesday.

South Africa's Supreme Court more than doubled Oscar Pistorius' murder sentence last month, accepting prosecutors' argument that the original jail term of six years for shooting dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was "shockingly lenient".
