One hundred children from Moscow are to get a countryside break in Estonia in the wake of wildfires that left the Russian capital swathed in smog for days, officials said Wednesday.

Yana Toom, deputy mayor of the Estonian capital Tallinn, told reporters that the youngsters would arrive next week for a 10-day stay in forest youth centres. Tallinn city hall is picking up the tab, she added.
