FF29 - - Oscar Pistorius is on trial for murder. He's accused of killing his
girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius isn't denying that he shot her, but
claims it was an accident.
- Pistorius is taking the stand in his own defense, it's the first time
we've heard from the athlete since Steenkamp was shot in his Pretoria home.
Watch live.
- In telling his version of events he's often broken down sobbing and has
had to leave court a few times to compose himself. Despite his very
emotional reaction to proceedings, Steenkamp's family have mostly sat
stoically as Pistorius described killing the model.
* - Read below to see how the trial has unfolded so far.
- CAUTION: there are some graphic images within the blog.
