Blade runner Pistorius allowed to go home - for now.

  • 22 February 2013

Oscar Pistorius, famously known as 'the blade runner', has been allowed to go home until his trial for murder begins.

Pistorius, a paralympic sprinter who ran at London 2012 on a set of prosthetic legs, is accused of shooting his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

A magistrate in South Africa, who's a bit like a judge, has granted him bail - which means he can go home until the trial starts in June.

Pistorius says he didn't mean to shoot his girlfriend.
