Pistorius weeps, vomits in court as girlfriend's autopsy detailed
An overcome Oscar Pistorius vomited in court on Monday as he listened to harrowing expert testimony about the autopsy of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, whom he is accused of murdering. Sitting in the dock, a clearly emotional Pistorius retched and heaved as University of Pretoria pathologist Gert Saayman gave an account of the multiple bullet wounds Pistorius admits inflicting. Pistorius says he fired four shots at Steenkamp on February 14, 2013 through a locked toilet door, believing her to be an intruder. Saayman -- whose testimony the media has been banned from directly reporting -- told the court how Steenkamp was struck four times with bullets from Pistorius's nine millimetre pistol.

Ukraine seeks US help after Putin talks tough on Crimea
Ukraine sought urgent Western backing on Monday after Russian President Vladimir Putin insisted that Crimea had the right to join his country even while hinting at a readiness for dialogue. The pro-European team in Kiev that rode the wave of three months of deadly protests to topple a Kremlin-backed regime is running against the clock to preserve the territorial integrity of the culturally splintered nation of 46 million. The self-declared leadership on the predominantly ethnic Russian peninsula of Crimea has proclaimed independence from Kiev and set a March 16 referendum on switching over to Kremlin rule. The decision has been condemned by Western powers who are also furious at Moscow's seizure of Crimea in a lightning but bloodless operation that began days after the February 22 fall and subsequent escape to Russia of president Viktor Yanukovych.
