AP Week in Pictures: Global

May 21-27, 2022

From a midshipman from Cameroon proudly being recognized by President Joe Biden during the U.S. Naval Academy’s graduation and commissioning ceremony at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md., to dozens of migrants perilously falling in the water while they struggle to cling to the side of an upturning boat off the waters of Tunisia, while over a hundred people are rescued by the non-governmental organization Open Arms in the Mediterranean Sea, to heartbroken Esmeralda Bravo, 63, shedding tears while holding a photo of her granddaughter, Nevaeh, one of the Robb Elementary School shooting victims, during a prayer vigil in Uvalde, Texas, this photo gallery highlights some of the most compelling images from around the world made or published by The Associated Press in the past week.

The selection was curated by AP photo editor Pamela Hassell in New York.
