Nairobi, Kenya
A member (C) of the Mau Mau War Veterans Association (MMWVA) yawns while attending the inauguration of a memorial to victims of torture and ill-treatment by the British colonialists during the Kenya "Emergency" at Uhuru Park's Freedom Corner, in Kenya's capital Nairobi, September 12, 2015. The memorial follows a multi-million dollar compensation settlement, agreed by Britain in 2013, for thousands of Kenyans tortured by colonial forces during an uprising at the tail end of the British Empire. The torture took place during the so-called Kenyan "Emergency" of 1952-60, when fighters from the Mau Mau movement attacked British targets, causing panic among white settlers and alarming the government in London. The Kenya Human Rights Commission has estimated 90,000 Kenyans were killed or maimed and 160,000 detained during the uprising. REUTERS/Thomas Mukoya
