Pistorius magistrate temporarily clears court

PRETORIA (Reuters) - The magistrate overseeing Oscar Pistorius’ bail hearing briefly cleared the court on Thursday, saying there was a “threat” outside the building after being handed a piece of paper.

Pistorius was hurried out of the court, but returned five minutes later and the bail hearing resumed.
