WASHINGTON: President Barack Obama Saturday called on South Sudan's leaders to help protect US personnel and citizens in the conflict-ravaged country, after three American military aircraft were hit, wounding four service members.

Obama, who was updated on Air Force One about the incident, "underscored that South Sudan's leaders have a responsibility to support our efforts to secure American personnel and citizens in Juba and Bor," a White House statement said, referring to the capital and a rebel-held city in Jonglei state.
