Double-amputee Olympian Oscar Pistorius will be on the stand again at his murder trail on Thursday -- a day after he was accused of "lying" by prosecutor Gerrie Nel.

On Wednesday, the sprinter told the court he "made a terrible mistake" when he fatally shot girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Feb. 14 last year. Pistorius is accused of premeditated murder but insists it was a case of mistaken identity.

Gasps of distress also echoed around the courtroom as prosecutors demanded Pistorius look at a picture of the injuries his bullets left in the model and law graduate's head.

The trial continues.
