Donald Trump says FBI agents raided his Mar-a-Lago Florida home

Donald Trump has said his Florida home was raided by the FBI, in a dramatic escalation of the legal investigations into the former US president.

In a lengthy statement on Monday evening, Mr Trump said a "large group" of FBI agents were at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach and had broken open a safe.

The search was reportedly linked to an investigation into his handling of classified and sensitive material.

The FBI and the Department of Justice have not yet commented.

An unnamed law enforcement official told CBS News, the BBC's US partner, that the Secret Service was notified shortly before the warrant was served at about 10:00 local time (14:00 GMT) and that agents protecting Mr Trump helped the FBI investigators.

Several boxes were taken away, the source said, adding that no doors were kicked down and the search had concluded by late afternoon.
