PRETORIA (AFP) - Star Paralympian Oscar Pistorius returned to the witness box to testify in his murder trial Tuesday, after an emotional first day that saw him issue a tearful apology to the victim's family.

Pistorius sat stone-still before a packed courtroom wearing a dark grey suit awaiting the start of proceedings, which could focus on the night he shot dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
