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 Hindu women encircled by birds during the Teej festival in Nepal, a pro-deomoracy protest in Hong Kong, and girls dancing during Transgender Children Day in Chile.

This gallery contains photos from the week of Aug. 19 - Aug. 25, 2017

This gallery was produced by Patrick Sison in New York
