At least 20 women were brought back to a hotel in Colombia by US Secret Service staff and Marines in an alleged scandal involving prostitutes, a Senator claimed yesterday.

Susan Collins said: "There are 11 agents involved. Twenty or 21 women foreign nationals were brought to the hotel, but allegedly Marines were involved with the rest."

The Secret Service has revoked the top security clearances of the 11 staff, who are on administrative leave due to the incident that marred President Barack Obama's weekend trip to Colombia.
