Mr Khashoggi never re-emerged after entering Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul on 2 October after he went to pick up papers he needed to get married.

The journalists fighting against the "war on truth" have been named Time magazine's People of the Year.

The four magazine covers for the Person of the Year show Jamal Khashoggi, top left, members of the Capital Gazette newspaper, top right, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, bottom left, and Maria Ressa. Khashoggi's death has made headlines for over two months, as governments debate how to respond to a killing likely orchestrated by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. "Now is certainly not the time to be afraid", she said on December 3 after turning herself in and posting bail on tax-fraud charges that would carry jail sentences of up to 10 years-charges widely viewed as an effort to stifle her work.

Time announced the recipients nearly a year to the day that Mr. Wa Lone and Mr. Kyaw Soe Oo, reporters for Reuters, were invited to a dinner with the police and then arrested and accused of violating Myanmar's colonial-era Official Secrets Act. The victor will appear on the cover of January's issue and will be chosen on the background of its influence in the passing year.

President Donald Trump, who was chosen Person of the Year in 2016, was runner-up.

Time also honoured Maria Ressa, the founder of the Philippine news site Rappler, which has been a frequent critic of Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, and the staff of the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland, where a gunman shot and killed five people in June.

Time has handed out the award every year since 1927, and, as well as celebrating world leaders or celebrities, it has often provided a thought-provoking, provocative or surprising take on global affairs.
