Pretoria: South African prosecutor Gerrie Nel indicated on Tuesday that he would wrap up his searing cross-examination of Oscar Pistorius, who has now spent more than a week in the witness box. Nel has spent five emotion-filled days dragging Pistorius over the coals, accusing him of lying, tailoring evidence and crying to avoid tough questions.
"We will today finalize the cross-examination of the accused," Nel told the court while asking for a two week postponement.
The cross-examination resumed on Tuesday with Nel accusing the sprinter of a cover-up, claiming he knowingly killed the 29-year-old model. (Also read: Pistorius version impossible, says Prosecutor)
