Estonia anxious over eurozone financial woes

Despite being the fastest growing economy in Europe, EU's newest member fears contagion.

    Estonia, the European Union's newest member, is the latest country to adopt the euro, having introduced the currency last year.

    The mood was festive at the time, but with Europe's current financial crisis, many now taken a more sombre view.
