S. Africa police cell phones seized in Pistorius case
CAPE TOWN (AFP) - South African police have seized 49 mobile phones belonging to officers after they were used to photograph athlete Oscar Pistorius soon after his arrest for murder, the police ministry said on Tuesday.
The phones - four official and 45 private handsets - were confiscated nearly a week after the Paralympian sprinter's arrest for the Valentine's Day killing of his girlfriend.
"These will form part of the evidence as part of possible South African police service internal disciplinary processes," police ministry spokesman Zweli Mnisi told AFP.
The cellphones were confiscated from officers at a Pretoria police station, where Pistorius was held after his arrest.
