An American military aircraft was fired on by suspected rebels in the South Sudan, leaving four service members wounded, with one of them in critical condition.
A major outbreak of fighting has broken out in the country, with at least 500 people reported dead in the violence. The South Sudanese government has blamed the violence on a coup attempt by the country's former vice president.
The U.S. military aircraft was struck as it approached the city of Bor, the capital city of the state of Jonglei which has seen some of the worst violence.
