Nel's fierce questioning on Wednesday brought Pistorius to tears and drew angry retorts and on Thursday the prosecutor quickly renewed his line of attack.Nel also accused Pistorius of making a public apology to Steenkamp's parents just to make himself feel better.Aside from the fireworks, the double amputee sprinter is likely to face persistent questions about the minutiae of what happened on Valentine's Day 2013, when he shot Steenkamp through a closed door in his flat in what prosecutors say was premeditated murder and Pistorius said was an accident.Pistorius has blamed his lawyers for discrepancies between his accounts given at a bail hearing and in previous written testimony.In testimony on Wednesday Pistorius seemed in turn defiant and harrowed, refusing pleas to answer questions directly.Pistorius is likely to remain on the stand for at least the rest of this week as his extensive testimony is probed and picked at by Nel, who once won a corruption conviction against a South African police commissioner.Pistorius faces a life sentence if convicted of murder.
