The family of Oscar Pistorius says it is "shaken" by the leaked graphic photos of the blood-spattered bathroom where the world-renowned athlete shot dead his girlfriend on Valentine's Day.

Images of the crime scene appeared in the media last week, just days before the double amputee’s court appearance today for a brief pre-trial hearing.

“We were shaken by the graphic images, leaked into the public domain..., of the accident scene at Oscar’s house,” Arnold Pistorius, who speaks on behalf of the family, said in a statement dated yesterday.

On Friday, Britain’s Sky News television released leaked images showing the bloodied bathroom of Pistorius’ luxury Pretoria home.
