BIRTH AND DEATH NOTICES
Oscar Pistorius will have a second chance at parole at a hearing on Friday after he was wrongly ruled ineligible for early release from prison in March. South Africa’s department of corrections said in a statement that a parole board will consider the former Olympic runner’s case again this week and decide “whether the inmate is suitable or not for social integration.” Pistorius, 36, a world-famous double-amputee athlete who broke barriers by competing on carbon-fibre running blades at the 2012 London Olympics, has been in prison since late 2014 for the shooting death of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
