Forensic experts working for Oscar Pistorius have visited the house where he killed girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp and examined the toilet door through which the Olympian fired the fatal shots.

The American specialists visited Pistorius' villa in Pretoria on Monday to gain access to the toilet door and reconstruct the crime scene.

South African police said it was the second time investigators for Pistorius had examined the scene in the presence of the police team.

Pistorius is preparing his defense before standing trial in March charged with pre-meditated murder over Steenkamp's killing.
