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 images include U.S. missiles lighting the sky over Damascus; students protesting gun violence in the U.S.; and participants in the annual Color Run in Paris tossing colored powder into the air. 

This gallery contains photos from the week of April 14-20, 2018. 

This gallery was produced by Patrick Sison in New York.
