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 migrants rescued in the Mediterranean, a flood in the Philippines and Kashmiri Muslim protesters running for cover from tear gas.

This gallery contains photos published Aug. 5-Aug. 12, 2016.
