Murder suspect Pistorius 'sad' after girlfriend's death

Oscar Pistorius' father has said his son is "sad" following the death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Speaking to SABC radio, Henke Pistorius said he knows "nothing" about the fatal shooting incident which has seen his son charged with murder.

It will be extremely obnoxious and rude to speculate. I don't know the facts. If anyone makes a statement, it will have to be Oscar. He's sad at the moment.
