Pictures of the Week

Highlights from the weekly AP photo report, a gallery featuring a mix of front-page photography, the odd image you might have missed and lasting moments our editors think you should see.

This week’s gallery features an Afghan boy trying to warm up next to a bonfire in a refugee village on the Greek island of Lesbos; people performing during a protest in Rio de Janeiro against the Brazilian mining company Vale after two dams burst, wiping out a village in Minas Gerais; and a Syrian girl licking a lollipop after her arrival on a small boat from the Turkish coast to Lesbos.


This gallery was produced by Courtney Dittmar in New York and contains photos published Nov. 14-Nov. 20, 2015.
