SHIMLA - An American tourist was gang-raped by a group of men in a hill resort in northern India, police said on Tuesday, in what is the latest in a series of attacks that have thrown the spotlight on women's safety.

The woman was picked up by three men in a truck late on Monday while hitch-hiking back to her guest house in the town of Manali in Himachal Pradesh state, police said.

Three men have been arrested in connection with the alleged attack, Himachal Pradesh police chief B. Kamal Kumar told Reuters Television in the state capital Shimla.

The woman told police her attackers took her to an isolated area and raped her. The woman was taken to a local hospital for preliminary tests before being taken back to her guest house, said a local police inspector, who declined to be identified
