Wildfires rage in Russia

More than 5,000 Russian emergency workers are battling wildfires in forests across Siberia.

More than 1,250 square kilometres of woodland have been affected in six eastern regions.

More than 60 fires raged around the eastern shore of Lake Baikal.

A probe has been launched to determine whether the fires were caused by negligence.
