Pistorius a suicide risk: Court

Paralympian star Oscar Pistorius, on trial over the killing of his girlfriend, is suffering from post-traumatic stress and is a suicide risk, a South African court heard on Wednesday.  The diagnosis was contained in a psychological report read to the court by lawyer Barry Roux, who is defending Pistorius on charges that he deliberately shot and killed model Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day last year. ‘Mr Pistorius has been severely traumatised by the events that took place,’ Roux quoted the report as saying. ‘He suffers from a post-traumatic stress disorder and a major depressive disorder.’
