Pretoria - Chaos still looms inside courtroom C at the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court, where Oscar Pistorius’ bail hearing was adjourned for 20 minutes.

Members of Oscar Pistorius' family remained seated in the public gallery, fearing they might lose their seats should they move.

Photographers were not allowed to take any photos of Pistorius as he stepped out of the dock.

In close consultation with his defence team, Pistorius' family declined to speak to the media.

Hugs are being exchanged as the family remains deep in conversation with each other.

Outside journalists and photographers swarmed ER24 paramedics as an ambulance arrived at the court. According to reports, their arrival was unrelated to the Pistorius case. A court employee had reportedly collapsed in the building.
