AP PHOTOS: Editor selections from the Middle East this week

Highlights from the weekly AP photo report from the Middle East and Pakistan, a selection of surprising images you might have missed from the region.

This week's gallery features mourners bidding farewell to former U.N. Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali; activists in Iraq using pantomime to protest corruption; majestic birds making their annual migration; women in Pakistan sharing stories of resilience and Valentine's Day celebrations that can't be subdued by war or Islamic conservatism.
