The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) released a statement saying it "will not be passing any comment" on the allegations that Oscar Pistorius has shot his girlfriend dead.
This is a police matter, with a formal investigation currently underway. Therefore it would be inappropriate for the IPC to comment on this incident until the official police process has concluded.
The IPC would like to offer its deepest sympathy and condolences to all families involved in this case.
