President Barack Obama called Sunday for a thorough and rigorous investigation into allegations involving prostitutes and Secret Service agents in Colombia, CNN reported.
Some 11 Secret Service agents and officers are being investigated over preliminary findings that they allegedly brought back several prostitutes to a hotel in Cartagena.
"We're representing the people of the United States and when we travel to another county I expect us to observe the highest standards," said Obama. He continued: "Obviously what's been reported doesn't match up with those standards."
