Pretoria - Judge Thokozile Masipa has amended an order preventing the media from reporting on Oscar Pistorius's psychology report.

"On Friday afternoon... I amended an earlier order that I gave on July 2," she said in the North Gauteng High Court on Monday morning.

"This was after it came to my attention that the attorneys representing the media and the defence attorneys [had come to an agreement]."

It was decided that the media could go ahead and publish information from two reports.

Three psychiatrists and a clinical psychologist observed Pistorius for 30 days at Weskoppies Psychiatric Hospital following a court order. Pistorius was a day patient.

The Paralympian is charged with murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on 14 February last year. He claims he shot her by accident through the locked door of his toilet in his Pretoria home, thinking she was an intruder about to emerge and attack him.

The State contends he killed her during an argument.
