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 collection includes a man standing by tombstones outside Bucharest, Romania; Shiite faithful pilgrims gathering for Arbaeen in Karbala, Iraq; a panda mother playing with her triplet cubs in south China's Guangdong province; and a hostage running for safety in Sydney, Australia.
This gallery contains photos published Dec. 11-17, 2014.
