Pistorius granted bail following murder conviction

Disgraced South African athlete Oscar Pistorius was granted bail today after judges changed his conviction for manslaughter to murder last week.

The Paralympic "Blade Runner" killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day 2013 and will now remain under house arrest until he is sentenced in April next year.

Pistorius will appear in court on April 18 to give an update on his appeal at the constitutional court.
