WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Three of 11 Secret Service employees, who are being investigated for allegations of misconduct over an incident in Colombia that involved prostitutes, are leaving, the agency said on Wednesday.

"Although the Secret Service's investigation into allegations of misconduct by its employees in Cartagena, Colombia, is in its early stages, and is still ongoing, three of the individuals involved will separate or are in the process of separating from the agency," a statement from Assistant Director Paul Morrissey said.
