Three victims of torture during Kenya's 1950s Mau Mau uprising have given evidence to the high court in their bid to win damages.
Last year, the elderly Kenyans won a ruling from Mr Justice McCombe that they had "arguable cases in law", but they are now facing the British government's claim that the actions were brought outside the legal time limit.
Their lawyers say it is an exceptional case in which the judge should exercise his discretion in their favour.
Wambugu Wa Nyingi, Paulo Muoka Nzili and Jane Muthoni Mara spoke through interpreters as they were questioned on Tuesday about statements they had provided.
