The day in photos: Oscar and the media, day two

By Greg Nicolson 4 March 2014

Oscarama, also known as murder trial against world famous athlete Oscar Pistorius, has attracted media from across the world. First they were here for Nelson Mandela’s funeral, now this. The media was the centre of attention at the beginning of proceedings on day two after certain outlets published a witness’s photograph against the expressed orders of the court. GREG NICOLSON was there, shooting with and at the circus.
