Oscar Pistorius trial: Neighbour heard 'screams'

A neighbour of South African athlete Oscar Pistorius has told a court in Pretoria that she was awoken by a woman's "terrible screams" in the early hours of 14 February 2013.

Mr Pistorius has pleaded not guilty at the start of his trial for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

State prosecutors allege the killing was premeditated, but he claims he mistook her for an intruder.

Andrew Harding reports from Pretoria.
