US President Barack Obama warned the leaders of South Sudan against a military coup after four US servicemen were wounded in an attack on their aircraft in the increasingly unstable country.

Obama stressed that the South Sudanese leaders "have a responsibility to support our efforts to secure American personnel and citizens in Juba and Bor," the capital and a rebel-held flashpoint town in the African nation.

The president's comments came after three CV-22 Osprey aircraft came under fire in South Sudan as they headed to Bor to help with efforts to evacuate Americans from the country teetering on the brink of a return to civil war.
