10 Things to See: A week of top AP photos

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 President Barack Obama acting out a scene from the book "Where the Wild Things Are" during the annual Easter Egg Roll in Washington; a man accused of being a thief laying in pain after being attacked by a man with a machete and sticks in Bangui, Central African Republic; a man fleeing Syria on horseback after being hit by a tank shell; and Meb Keflezighi, of San Diego, Calif., celebrating his victory in the 118th Boston Marathon.

This gallery contains photos published April 17-24, 2014.
