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 skydivers dispersing after forming the shape of the letter "M'' during a memorial service for the late air racer Mike Mangold in Apple Valley, California; a boy standing next to the ruins of a destroyed house in Beit Hanoun, Gaza Strip; and an Orthodox priest holding a cross as he is accompanied by a guard of honor during an Epiphany ceremony to bless the water in Mytilene port in Lesbos, Greece.
This gallery contains photos published Jan. 1-Jan. 8, 2016.
