Kenyan veterans in UK court bid

Breaking News

Three men and two women have launched a compensation claim for alleged human rights abuses in the 1950s and 1960s.

Thousands of people were rounded up and forced into camps by the British during what was known as the Mau Mau uprising.

The UK says the claim is not valid because of the amount of time since the abuses were alleged to have happened.

The five Kenyans - aged in their 70s and 80s - are the lead claimants in the reparations case.
