Pictures of the week

Here's your look at 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 includes a protest against reforms to the retirement and pension system in Argentina, firefighters working to contain a wildfire in California, Afghan migrants and refugees arriving at a port near Athens, Palestinian protesters clashing with Israeli soldiers and features from around the globe.

This gallery contains photos from the week of Dec. 9-15, 2017.

This gallery was produced by Courtney Dittmar in New York
