Oscar Pistorius trial: Day 18

Key moments of day 18 of the Oscar Pistorius murder trial, saw the athlete questioned aggressively about a video showing him at a shooting range and a graphic image of his dead girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

South African athlete Oscar Pistorius has been cross examined in court on day 18 of his murder trial following the shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp last year.

The court saw a video showing him shooting a watermelon at a gun range and saying, "It's a lot softer than brain but **** it's like a zombie stopper."

State prosecutor Gerrie Nel compared it with Ms Steenkamp's head injuries and the court was shown a graphic image, drawing objections from defence lawyer Barry Roux.
