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 mural of baseball pioneer Jackie Robinson in Philadelphia, a land mine detonating amid the ruins of Syria's ancient city of Palmyra and the aftermath of Japan's earthquakes.
This gallery contains photos published April 9-April 15, 2016.
