Kenya's constitutional court has ordered the government to pay torture survivors nearly $500,000 in what human rights campaigners consider a landmark ruling.
During the rule of Daniel Arap Moi, the president during the 1980s, secret police kept at least 21 people in a torture chamber for weeks.
Human rights defenders believe the ruling opens the door for more claims against the government.
