Pistorius weeps and retches on hearing graphic evidence


Oscar Pistorius has broken down in court at his murder trial during the presentation of graphic autopsy evidence.

The Olympic and Paralympic star wept and reportedly vomited on hearing details about the gunshot wounds suffered by his girlfriend.

A bucket was placed beside Pistorius, who is being tried in front of a judge without a jury.

Just before the evidence from a pathologist, the court stopped a live broadcast of the trial.

The prosecution claims that after an argument Pistorius fired four shots at model Reeva Steenkamp through the locked door of a toilet.

The double-amputee denies murder, claiming he mistook his girlfriend for a burglar.
