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 a member of the Maasai Cricket Warriors running onto the field during a charity match in Sydney, Australia; a woman, enclosed in a mosquito net, recovering from dengue fever at a hospital in Luque, Paraguay; and rescuers trying to enter an office building that collapsed after a magnitude-6.4 earthquake in Tainan, Taiwan.

This gallery contains photos published Jan. 30-Feb. 5, 2016.
