Not yet clear when Pistorius parole verdict will come
We’re following events in South Africa closely, where disgraced athlete Oscar Pistorius is hoping to be released from jail after serving half his 13-year sentence for the murder of Reeva Steenkamp.
The lawyer for Ms Steenkamp’s parents says a decision on his parole could be reached on Friday.
But the BBC’s Andrew Harding, who is outside Atteridgeville prison where the parole hearing is taking place, says it is still not clear when a decision will be made.
And if Pistorius does win parole on Friday, he still won’t be free for some days or more likely weeks, our correspondent adds.
Just before the hearing June Steenkamp said it would be hard to see her daughter’s killer again, but in the end he was not in room when she appeared before the board.
