Pistorius parole review delayed

Oscar Pistorius gestures as he leaves the high court, in Pretoria, South Africa. Pistorius' lawyers say prosecutors are persisting with a "failed case" by appealing the double-amputee athlete's acquittal for murder at South Africa's Supreme Court.

A South African parole board has delayed by two weeks the review of Oscar Pistorius's early release from prison, an official said Saturday.

"The parole review board met on Friday, and they could not deal with all the matters at hand, including the case of Oscar Pistorius.

“They will meet again in two weeks' time to look at his matter," said Manelisi Wolela, spokesman for the Department of Correctional Services.
