YANGON -- Calls for the Myanmar government to immediately release two Reuters journalists who were covering the plight of the country's Rohingya Muslim minority continue to grow in the international community as the reporters have not been seen or heard for about a week now.

"We and their families continue to be denied access to them or to the most basic information about their well-being and whereabouts," wrote Stephen J. Adler, Reuters president and editor-in-chief, calling for the reporters' immediate release in a statement on Monday.
