Former FBI Director James Comey has agreed to testify before the US Senate Intelligence Committee at a public hearing.

Mr Comey was fired by Donald Trump last week amid an agency probe into alleged Russian meddling in the US election.

The hearing will be scheduled after the May 29 Memorial Day holiday, an agency statement said.
