This photo, of a child at play -- with a toy rocket-propelled grenade launcher -- is one of several images highlighted at this morning's AP global news meeting by AP Photo Supervisor Jim Collins.
The picture was taken in Sadr City, a Shiite enclave of Baghdad.
Collins also pointed out the photo below, shot outside Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' headquarters in the West Bank City of Ramallah. The boy in the image is holding up a portrait of relatives jailed by Israel, as part of a demonstration calling for the release of Palestinian prisoners.

Many of the most striking photos show aftermath from the fires -- like the picture above, in which classic car collector Bruce Howe looks at what's left of a rare 1930 Model A Station Wagon he kept in his garage in San Diego. Or the one below, showing Bill Glathe surveying the damage at his father-in-law's home in Escondido.
