Several Secret Service agents providing security for President Barack Obama in Colombia have been recalled, following allegations of misconduct.

The agency did not give details, but reports suggest the accusations involve prostitution in Cartagena, which is hosting the Summit of the Americas.

Agency spokesman Edwin Donovan told the BBC the agents had been replaced and Obama's security would not be affected.

Obama arrived in Colombia yesterday to attend the summit.
