AP PHOTOS: A selection of pictures from the past week

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 images of a slum in Rio de Janeiro overlooking fireworks exploding from the Maracana stadium during the opening ceremony of the 2016 Olympics; A dog running through a rainbow formed by the mist of police water cannon during a student protest in Santiago, Chile; Cincinnati Reds' Scott Schebler getting doused by Homer Bailey after hitting a walk-off three run home run against St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Seung Hwan.
