Time Magazine unveils its 100 most influential people list

Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai, hip hop artist Jay Z and President Barack Obama have been named among the most influential people in the world by the magazine.

President Barack Obama is on the list for the eighth time, more than any other person on the list.

Time says the list wasn't ranked, instead it's broken down into distinct categories including titans, pioneers, icons, leaders and artists.

For the first time the issue features seven separate covers, each featuring a member of the TIME 100.

This year's list includes 35 women.
