South African athlete Oscar Pistorius has begun to describe in court the moments leading up to the shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
The athlete denies deliberately shooting dead Ms Steenkamp in his home on Valentine’s Day last year, arguing he mistook her for an intruder.
He said he was overcome with fear after hearing a noise from the bathroom.
Earlier he cried when describing Valentine’s Day gifts they were to give each other.
On his first day on the stand, he made a tearful apology to Ms Steenkamp’s family.
