Jamal Khashoggi and other murdered and imprisoned journalists become Time's 2018 Person of the Year (Photos)

Time magazine has named Jamal Khashoggi and other killed and imprisoned journalists as its "person of the year" for 2018.The magazine titled "the Guardians and the War on Truth" has four different Time covers that feature journalists from around the world.Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed in the Saudi embassy in Turkey earlier this year, appears alone in one, while staff from the Capital Gazette, the US newspaper where five people were killed this year, feature in another.Pictures of Maria Ressa, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo appeared separately on the other two covers.Ms. Ressa is the Editor of Rappler, a Philippine news website that always reports about the country's leadership, while Reuters journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo were imprisoned in Myanmar for investigating the massacre of Rohingya Muslims.According to Time, they were chosen "for taking great risks in pursuit of greater truths, for the imperfect but essential quest for facts, for speaking up and for speaking out".See the full magazine covers below.
