Pretoria - The bail application of murder-accused paralympian Oscar Pistorius started in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court shortly before 10:00 on Tuesday.

After Pistorius was brought in, State prosecutor Gerrie Nel launched straight into the first official details of what allegedly led to the death of Pistorius's girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

"There are objective facts that are not in dispute," said Nel.

He said Steenkamp was shot behind a closed bathroom door.

Pistorius is charged with Steenkamp's murder last Thursday.
