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 man exercising his open carry rights in Cleveland during the Republican convention, people protecting themselves from a gunfight during a coup attempt in Turkey, a child carrying a kettle through a flooded street in China.

This gallery contains photos published July 16-22, 2016
