Finalists have been selected to design President Donald Trump's proposed border wall with Mexico.

US Customs and Border Protection said it will notify finalists over the next days.

It will not say how many there are, but it has said previously it would pick up to 20.

An agency document released last month by Senate Democrats said authorities plan to select winners by June 14 to build prototypes in San Diego on a short stretch of land near the Otay Mesa border crossing with Mexico.

Building a wall on the Mexican border was a cornerstone of Mr Trump's presidential campaign and a flashpoint for his detractors.
