Pistorius lawyers appeal bail conditions

FILE - In this photo taken Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2013 Olympian Oscar Pistorius stands following his bail hearing, as his brother Carl, center, and father Henke look on, in Pretoria, South Africa. The family of Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee Olympian charged with murdering his girlfriend, is feuding publicly about whether guns are a necessary protection against crime in South Africa. British newspapers quoted Pistorius' father, Henke Pistorius, as saying the family owned handguns for self-defense and suggesting that South Africa's government shares blame for "white crime levels" in the country. In a statement Tuesday March 5, 2013 quoting the runner's uncle, Arnold Pistorius, the family subsequently distanced itself from the father's comments.
