South African Olympic hero Oscar Pistorius is to face an additional charge of possessing unlicensed ammunition, a lead investigator in the case said on Wednesday.

"We found a box of .38 special calibre rounds," Hilton Botha told the court which is hearing his application for bail on a charge of murder over the killing of his girlfriend last week. Botha said he was not a licence-holder for that type of ammunition.
