President Barack Obama said he wants a thorough investigation of the alleged misconduct by Secret Service agents in Colombia, Sunday, where he planned to visit.
In the press conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, Obama said he "will be angry" if the allegations are true regarding the scandal, ABC News reports.
Eleven Secret Service agents, which have been sent home and put on administrative leave, and five military service members were involved in the incident alleging that they brought prostitutes to their hotel, Bloomberg Businessweek reports.
Since prostitution is legal in designated zones in Colombia the investigation will revolve around whether protocol was violated and if the president's safety could have been compromised, officials said, ABC News reports.
"When we travel to another country, I expect us to observe the highest standards," Obama said. "Obviously, what's been reported doesn't match up with those standards," Bloomber Businessweek reports.
