Mau Mau: 'My kids were killed' by the British in Kenya


Three Kenyans who allege they were tortured by the British colonial authorities during the 1950s Mau Mau uprising, are to begin a damages case at the High Court in London later.

They are seeking compensation from the British government for the abuse they say they suffered during the rebellion.

One woman, Naomi, told the BBC World Service about her experience during the violence, beginning by recalling the night her family was stopped at a roadblock.

WARNING: Her account, given through an interpreter, is very graphic and disturbing.
