Kenyans tortured by British colonial forces during the Mau Mau insurgency in the 1950s are to get compensation worth a total of over 23 million euros.

Britain’s Foreign Secretary William Hague said the government sincerely regretted the abuses.

The Mau Mau uprising which began as a violent campaign against white settlers was eventually put down.
