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 protester raising her fist amid tear gas during a protest in Tehran, Iran; ice castles in Canada, and a couple celebrating the new year in a beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

This gallery contains photos from the week of Dec. 30, 2017 to Jan. 5, 2018.

This gallery was produced by Patrick Sison in New York
