A bail hearing for South African Olympic and Paralympic star Oscar Pistorius has been adjourned to Wednesday to allow the prosecution time to study affidavits submitted by the defence.

The hearing at a magistrate's court in Pretoria will resume at 0700 GMT. At Tuesday's hearing, Pistorius said he did not intend to kill his model girlfriend after being accused of shooting her repeatedly through a locked bathroom door in what prosecutors said was a "premeditated" murder.
