Wikimedia has confirmed that they are facing some technical issues on their platform.
As a result, Wikipedia pages are mostly inaccessible around the world.
We’re having some technical issues, but our engineers are working on it. We’ll be back soon! ur1.ca/47ok4

Some users are reporting that they are able to load the pages but the formatting is all messed up.
We hope that the problem is resolved fast enough. In the last 10 minutes of surfing, I have already landed on two Wikipedia pages that did not load at all for me.
