Prosecution: Oscar Pistorius a 'deceitful witness'

Oscar Pistorius has been called a "deceitful witness" by the prosecution, as it presented its closing arguments in his murder trial.

Gerrie Nel said the athlete told the court a "snowball of lies" and that "he cannot escape" a conviction for murdering with intent.

The South African athlete denies murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, at his home in Pretoria last year, maintaining he mistook her for an intruder.

Andrew Harding reports from Pretoria.
