Port Elizabeth - The family of slain model Reeva Steenkamp asked the media to assemble on the grass outside the Victoria Park Chapel, in Port Elizabeth, for a briefing after her funeral on Tuesday.

Around 11.45am, mourners were seen leaving the chapel. Many congregated in the shade of a tree in front of the chapel.

Steenkamp's family has appealed for privacy in the wake of her death. However, a large contingent of local and international media assembled outside the chapel from early morning.

Steenkamp was shot dead at the home of her boyfriend, paralympian Oscar Pistorius on Thursday.

On Tuesday, Pistorius was applying for bail in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court. - Sapa
