More US soldiers docked pay over Colombia prostitution scandal

WASHINGTON, (Reuters) – Another three U.S. soldiers were docked pay and reprimanded over their roles in the Secret Service prostitution scandal in Colombia last year, the U.S. military disclosed yesterday.

U.S. military troops and Secret Service agents were helping provide security arrangements for President Barack Obama before his April visit to a summit in the seaside city of Cartagena.

Secret Service employees were accused of bringing women, some of them prostitutes, back to their hotel rooms in Colombia, in an incident that overshadowed Obama’s April visit and embarrassed the services involved.
