The front row of the public gallery in the High Court in Pretoria, where paralympian Oscar Pistorius was appearing for his murder trial, was a sea of black on Monday.

Most of those from the Steenkamp family wore black and only one woman in purple stood out.

The trial, scheduled to begin at 10am, was not yet underway by 10.30am, but files had piled up on Judge Thokozile Masipa's desk.

Pistorius (27) is charged with murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his home in Pretoria on Valentine's Day last year and contravening the Firearms Control Act.

He has said he thought she was an intruder when he shot her through a closed toilet door.

The proceedings in the wood-panelled courtroom will be broadcast live on television and radio, with the initial indictment listing 107 witnesses to testify for the State.
