NZ journalist honoured

Hong Kong's best-known Western journalist, New Zealander Kevin Sinclair, who died of cancer last week, has been named person of the year in a prestigious annual poll.

Sinclair, 65, beat Hong Kong Chief Executive Donald Tsang and pro-democracy champion Anson Chan to the title in a poll by the Government-run radio station RTHK, winning four times as many votes as any other challenger.
