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 an attack on opposition lawmakers in Venezuela; civilians fleeing the fighting in Mosul, Iraq; Tibetan children preparing to perform during celebrations for the Dalai Lama’s 82nd birthday.

This gallery contains photos published July 1-7, 2017.

This gallery was produced by Patrick Sison in New York.
