The first interviews to find a replacement for fired FBI Director James Comey take place on Saturday.

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is among four people who will meet with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy Rod Rosenstein.

But about 11 people in all are being considered, US media report.

President Trump has faced a backlash for sacking Comey, who had been investigating alleged Russian meddling in the US election.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters the president would fill the job "as soon as he finds a candidate that fits the qualities that he feels are necessary".
