Pistorius trial: Day 22 round-up in tweets and video

Five days of rigorous cross-examination of Oscar Pistorius has come to an end in his trial for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. The athlete denied the state prosecution's claim that he had intentionally killed Ms Steenkamp.

Forensic expert Roger Dixon also took the stand to explain the outcome of light and sound tests he conducted on Pistorius' bedroom, which correspondents say may support the defence case.

Here is how our reporters covered the day's testimony, via tweets and video reports. You can follow coverage when proceedings resume on Tuesday via our correspondents in Pretoria on Twitter here.
