Prosecutors called on Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2015, for South Africa's "Blade Runner" Oscar Pistorius to be convicted of murder and sent back to jail for shooting his girlfriend, challenging a court's decision to sentence him for a lesser offense.

The Paralympic gold medalist was freed on parole in October less than a year into a five-year sentence for the "culpable homicide" of Reeva Steenkamp, who he killed on Valentine's Day 2013.

Pistorius himself did not attend the half-day Supreme Court hearing into his highly-charged case, which has prompted a fierce debate in South Africa, and accusations from some rights groups that the white track star got preferential treatment. (Reuters)
