(CNN) — Five members of the U.S. military have been “confined to quarters” in Colombia after they “violated the curfew” and “may have been involved in inappropriate conduct” at a Cartagena hotel where U.S. Secret Service agents were staying, the U.S. military said Saturday in a statement.

U.S. government sources have said that a group of Secret Service agents sent to Colombia ahead of President Barack Obama were relieved of duty and returned home amid allegations of misconduct that involved prostitution.
