The heads of top US spy agencies are to testify before Congress about possible links between Russia and President Donald Trump's election campaign, BBC reports.

They will also address Mr Trump's claim that he was wiretapped by Barack Obama.

FBI director James Comey and the NSA's Admiral Mike Rogers will speak at a rare open hearing of the congressional intelligence committee.

Russia denies trying to influence the election, while Mr Trump denounced the investigation as a "total witch hunt".
