Pistorius lawyers condemn leaked re-enactment video

Oscar Pistorius' defence team has condemned the airing of a video showing the athlete re-enacting the events of the night he killed his girlfriend.

The footage shows Mr Pistorius shouting and running on his stumps as he simulates holding a handgun.

It was aired in Australia only by broadcaster Channel 7 on Sunday.

A spokesperson for Mr Pistorius' said that the footage was filmed in order to create a "forensic animation", but that it was "obtained illegally".

Milton Nkosi reports.
