Oscar Pistorius' Prison Sentence Doubled to 13 Years Pistorius can appeal the new sentence, according to Kelly Phelps, an adviser to his defense team, but no decision has been made.

The crowning of Nel-Peters evoked mixed reactions across the world and from different countries that had their own top contenders in the competition.
The Minister said also that, "she displayed poise, confidence and the true Jamaican spirit during the show".
In response, the South African beauty queen called for "equal work and equal pay" for women in the workplace, citing that women only get paid 75 percent of what men earn for doing the same job.
