Pistorius trial resumes

Paralympian Oscar Pistorius’s murder trial resumed on Tuesday with pathologist Gert Saayman waiting in the witness box to continue explaining the fatal injuries sustained by Reeva Steenkamp .

Judge Thokozile Masipa and her two assessors Janet Henzen-Du Toit and Themba Mazibuko made the slow daily procession to their seats in the front of the court.

The judge said that after someone gave her information about blogging and tweeting, “in respect of this witness, blogging and tweeting is allowed”.

Pistorius is accused of murdering Steenkamp on February 14, 2013 at his home in Silver Woods, Pretoria.

He has pleaded not guilty to that and a number of charges under the Firearms Act.

Defence lawyer Barry Roux resumed cross-examination on Tuesday.
