Former US President Donald Trump has been criminally charged for the second time in three months.

This time, the subject is his handling of classified files after he left the White House. Thousands of documents were seized in an FBI search at his Florida estate Mar-a-Lago last year, including about 100 marked as classified.

Legal experts say that Mr Trump, who is running for president again in 2024, could face prison if convicted of mishandling the documents, or of obstructing the investigation into whether he did.

He has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, and said he "never thought it possible that such a thing could happen to a former president of the United States".

Here's what to know, and what to expect next.

When will Trump be arrested?

On his social media platform Truth Social, Mr Trump said he has been asked to appear at a federal courthouse in Miami on Tuesday 13 June.

The US Secret Service will be meeting on Friday with the former president's staff and the Secret Service officers assigned to him, a law enforcement official told the BBC's US partner CBS News.
