AP Week in Pictures, Middle East

This photo gallery highlights some of the most compelling images made or published by Associated Press photographers in the Middle East, Afghanistan & Pakistan Region between April 30-May 6, 2020.

This week’s selection includes scenes from across the region, where human resilience was on display as people tried to find new ways to conduct their daily lives in the coronavirus era. From protesting in masks for their basic rights to burying the dead in full PPE, to a long-overdue haircut at the barber and a socially-distanced visit to a sidewalk cafe: this is how we do things now.

The gallery was curated by AP Middle East Deputy News Director for Photography and Storytelling Dusan Vranic and photographer Maya Alleruzzo.
