Oscar Pistorius prosecutors 'twisted facts', defence says

Prosecutors have twisted the facts to discredit South African athlete Oscar Pistorius in his murder trial, his lawyer has said in closing remarks.

Barry Roux said the double amputee should have faced a lesser charge of culpable homicide over the shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Mr Pistorius denies prosecution claims that he deliberately shot Ms Steenkamp.

Andrew Harding reports.
