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 images of a 4-year-old girl who was badly burned in a massive suicide truck bombing in Karada, Iraq; an aunt crying after viewing the body of Alton Sterling, who was shot in an encounter with police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana; and a woman with an infant takes cover in the doorway of U.N. offices as fighting starts in the capital of South Sudan.
