Oscar cross-examination begins

Prosecution lawyer Gerrie Nel began a fierce cross-examination of Oscar Pistorius on Wednesday, strong-arming him into publicly recognising the magnitude of what he did killing Reeva Steenkamp.

After Pistorius admitted making a “mistake” regarding her death, Nel raising his voice, asked “You made a mistake? You killed a person, that’s what you did! You shot and killed her, won’t you take responsibility for that?”

Pistorius had earlier denied any intention to kill girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, or the intruder he believed to be behind the door, his clearest denial of murder to date.

“I did not intend to kill Reeva, milady, or anyone else,” he told his trial on a third day in the witness box.
