Authorities in India say a 31-year-old American woman was gang-raped just outside Manali, a popular tourist destination.
The woman was reportedly hitch-hiking back to her resort, when she got into a truck with a group of men around 1 a.m. who, allegedly took her to an isolated area and raped her.
No information has been released on the victim's condition and police are currently searching the area for the alleged perpetrators.
