Review of revision 1593164 [Not ready][edit]

Reviewing stuff[edit]

I've done an edit with the idea of reviewing it to make it more in line with the style guide. And then having done that, went oops! Possibility that I went to far to continue to qualify myself as a reviewer. I checked all the sources and did not find any plagiarism. The article reads as neutral enough to me though a bit concerned that the human rights abuses are not mentioned as a counter balance on the neutrality issue. I do not think there are copyright issues. The article is three paragraphs and written in more news style active voice.

Meles Zenawi, the Prime Minister of Ethiopia, died yesterday of an undisclosed illness at a Brussels hospital. This came after months of speculation about the health of the Ethiopian leader after he missed several high profile meetings in the last month. An Ethiopian government official reported a week prior to his death that Meles Zenawi was recovering well from his illness.

Zenawi ruled for more than 20 years after taking leadership from Mengistu Haile Mariam in 1991. His deputy Haile Mariam Desalegne, who is also the foreign minister, was appointed to occupy the Prime Minister's post in an acting capacity following the news.

Ethiopia's economy was transformed under Zenawi's leadership to place it to among the Africa's fastest growing with the Prime Minister serving as a key ally to the United States in fighting terrorism. During his time as head of state, several social, economic, religious and political developments and systems were established for the first time in Ethiopia. He is survived by one widow, Azeb Mesfin.

The first source remaining does confirm the above. The second source confirms most of that and the widow's name. Removed extra sources as un-neccesary.

The Human Rights issue is mentioned in several of these sources and for neutrality's sake, I think it needs to be in there. I am going to NOT pass this based on that alone. Add it and it should be passible.--LauraHale (talk) 12:25, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Review of revision 1594598 [Not ready][edit]

And I just realise... The fact found in the title? Not found in the article, though it is supported by the sources. This needs to be addressed by either a title change or adding it to the article. --LauraHale (talk) 12:27, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
