US Secret Service prostitution scandal involved 20 women

WASHINGTON (AFP) - About 20 women were brought to the hotel in Colombia where Secret Service agents were accused of inviting prostitutes back to their rooms, a United States (US) lawmaker said on Tuesday after being briefed on the widening scandal.
The security breach ahead of last weekend's Summit of the Americas attended by President Barack Obama is 'potentially extremely serious,' Senator Susan Collins, ranking Republican on the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said after being briefed by Secret Service director Mark Sullivan.

'He told me that there are 11 Secret Service agents and officers involved,' she said in a statement.
'Some 20 women foreign nationals were brought to the hotel in (Colombia), but allegedly marines were involved with the rest.'
