>> Oscar Pistorius has been treated for wrist injuries, the prison service says. The Paralympian is serving a six-year jail sentence for murdering his girlfriend. He was rushed to hospital at midday on Saturday. Pistorius denies trying to kill himself, according to the Department of Correctional Services. A security guard said he had bad cuts on his wrists and doctors wrapped them in bandages.
