And in South Africa, a new twist on the emotion-packed murder trial of Oscar Pistorius. The bladerunner, accused of sheeting his model girlfriend in his home. Today, a private video in which Pistorius re-enacts what Pistorius says happened that night. ABC's lama Hasan now with the tape and how it could change the case. Reporter: Raising questions about the olympic champion's ability to move and protect himself without his prosthetics. That's why, they say, he was quick to grab a gun when he thought he heard intruders. Instead shooting and killing his model girlfriend. But tonight, take a look at this new haunting video, showing the bla bladerunner, rung on his stumping. Re-enacting his movements that night. His right arm extended forward, mimicking holding a gun. It also shows how he said he found steenkamp, slumped over in the bathroom, later how he struggled to move her. His sister, apparently playing the part of the victim. Pistorius' defense team says it hired a u.s.-based company to shoot the footage at his uncle's home before the trial for preparation only. But it was obtained illegally and leaked by Australia's channel 7 news with no permission, calling it an invasion of the family's privacy. The video has not been admitted as evidence in court and the prosecution has already heard its last witness. Those new images seen around the world tonight as the judge wakes murder or self-defense. Lama Hasan, ABC news, London.
