Pretoria - A group of women protested on Tuesday at the Pretoria Magistrate's Court where murder-accused paralympic star Oscar Pistorius was appearing.

The group waving placards sang and danced along Frances Baard Street adjacent to the court. The group included members of the ANC Women's League.

Some of the larger placards read "Pistorius must rot in jail" and "No violence against women". Others read: "No to killing of women and children".

"No bail for Pistorius, no bail," a woman at the front of the group chanted. The rest of the group joined in on the chant.

Police officers guarding the entrance asked the protesters to move away from the court entrance.

The protesters then assembled at a parking lot.
