The Hotel Caribe in Cartegena, Colombia is shown on Tuesday, April 17, 2012, two days after President Barack Obama departed Colombia following his participation in the VI Summit of the Americas. Members of the U.S. Secret Service had been staying in the hotel to arrange security prior to the president's arrival. Official sources say that 11 members of the Secret Service allegedly brought prostitutes to the hotel. The accused members have had their security clearances revoked and been placed on administrative leave.
