Oscar Pistorius has arrived in court for the start of the second week of his murder trial in South Africa.

The Olympic and Paralympic star is being tried over the fatal shooting of his girlfriend almost a year ago.

Pistorius’ defence team will today continue to cross-examine witnesses, including a security guard who came across the scene of the killing.

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.
