PRETORIA (AFP) - An overcome Oscar Pistorius was physically sick in court on Monday as he listened to harrowing testimony about the autopsy of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, whom he is accused of killing.

Sitting in the dock, a clearly emotional Pistorius retched and heaved as University of Pretoria pathologist Gert Saayman gave a graphic account of the multiple bullet wounds Pistorius admits inflicting.
