Why does article not include the current ethnic cleansing?Edit

How is it possible that this article virtually ignores the recent situation?

Because this is an encyclopedia and it's against the rules to simply make it some sort of a hot-headline/recent/current affairs site. --Loginnigol 14:01, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
  But an army operation against alleged terrorists in Rakhine State since August 2017 has driven more than half a million Muslim Rohingyas to flee to neighbouring Bangladesh, in what the United Nations called a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing".
  This has damaged the new government's international reputation, and highlighted the continuing grip of the military in Myanmar.

  UN officials point finger at Myanmar for 'crimes under international law'

.... Human rights rapporteur says evidence about atrocities against Rohingya people must be collected and presented to international criminal court.

In reply to Loginnigol: This isn't the 18th Century, where updating an encyclopedia requires re-issuing 40 bound volumes. As Wikipedia is online it should be kept as up to date as possible. This includes referencing what has been an on-going ethnic cleansing and likely genocide which has been well documented by UN Special Procedures including a Fact-Finding Mission and now, a IIIM mechanism which has only ever been previously deployed for the horrors committed in Syria. As wikipedia is a source and point of first call for so many people, to not mention any of these widely corroborated developments and not have them front and centre in the introduction is disingenuous at best. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:39, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 5 July 2019Edit

The lack of an educated workforce skilled in modern technology hinders Myanmar's economy, although recent reforms and developments carried out by the new government, in collaboration with foreign countries and organisations aim to make this a thing of the past.

This needs an extra comma. Please add one after "organisations" to balance out the comma that follows "government" (talk) 12:49, 5 July 2019 (UTC)
