Honduras has said it is setting up a commission to investigate reports that a wild Christmas party was held at its embassy in the Colombian capital.
Reports suggest that two prostitutes attended the party, which began on the evening of 20 December and carried on until the next morning, Efe reports.
Computers and mobile phones were stolen and rooms in the embassy, north of Bogota, were ransacked.
Colombian police are looking for the sex workers who attended the party.
According to a press release quoted by Efe, Honduran Foreign Minister Arturo Corrales has named an investigative commission "with the goal of obtaining, verifying and establishing exactly what happened".
An embassy vehicle was reportedly used to bring the sex workers into the building.
