Pistorius Trial: Week Five, Day Three
With Oscar Pistorius still on the stand, we’re braced for another gruelling day of testimony in the North Gauteng High Court. Matters concluded half an hour early yesterday, after Pistorius’s uncontrollable wailing caused the defence’s Barry Roux to request that the court called it a day. We had only just reached the part in the athlete’s account when he realised that he’d shot Reeva Steenkamp, so cross-examination by Gerrie Nel may still be a way off. By REBECCA DAVIS
