Young women walk with candles in procession to celebrate St. Lucia's Day in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Saint Katarina in St. Petersburg, Russia, Saturday, Dec. 13, 2014.

Here's your look at 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 collection includes a man standing by tombstones outside Bucharest, Romania; Shiite faithful pilgrims gathering for Arbaeen in Karbala, Iraq; a panda mother playing with her triplet cubs in south China's Guangdong province; and a hostage running for safety in Sydney, Australia.

This gallery contains photos published Dec. 11-17, 2014.
