Prosecutors are appealing to extend the six-year murder sentence handed to Oscar Pistorius last year.

South Africa’s Supreme Court of Appeal will hear the state’s arguments on 3 November.

Pistorius, a Paralympic gold medallist, was jailed in 2016 for the murder of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

The National Prosecuting Authority will claim the sentence was too short.

“The state, in the papers, we stipulate clearly that the sentence imposed is shockingly low,” said NPA spokesman Luvuyo Mfaku.
