Oscar Pistorius guilty of premeditated murder and has lied, says prosecutor

Oscar Pistorius must be found guilty of the premeditated murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, South African prosecutors have said, as the athlete's testimony at his trial was dismissed as mendacious and "devoid of truth".

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel, making his closing argument for the state, said the defence claim that Pistorius believed there was an intruder in his house on the night of 14 February 2013 would not help him escape conviction: "[If] I know there is a human being behind that door. I mean to kill that person and I do so," Nel said. "That it turned out to be Reeva is [legally] of no consequence."
