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 spaceship launching from the Russian-leased Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan; army soldiers raising their weapons in celebration in Iraq; and a student demonstrating in South Africa.
This gallery contains photos published Oct. 15-22, 2016.
