Pretoria - Oscar Pistorius's sister Aimee approached family members of Reeva Steenkamp on Thursday morning.

During a tea break in the North Gauteng High Court, Aimee stood talking to the athlete, dressed in a black suit.

A few minutes later, she approached the Steenkamp side of the public gallery. A visibly emotional Aimee sat down next to Steenkamp's cousin and spoke to her softly.

Steenkamp's cousin squeezed Aimee's arm before she got up and returned to her family.

A short while later, Oscar Pistorius glanced over the public gallery before exchanging a few words with a photographer sitting next to him.

He then went to chat to his aunt where the two bowed their heads, held hands and said a brief prayer.

Thursday marks the 12th anniversary of the death of Pistorius's mother Sheila.

During the tea break, Pistorius chatted to his family and his lawyers and then sat by himself at the front of the court eating a sandwich.
