South African prosecutors say they are going to appeal against the conviction and sentence given to athlete Oscar Pistorius for killing his girlfriend.



Last week, Pistorius began serving a five-year prison sentence for the culpable homicide of Reeva Steenkamp, although he could be out in 10 months.



The double-amputee Olympic sprinter was cleared of murder.



Pistorius' family have said that he will not appeal.
