Photos of the week: 8/28 - 9/4


This past week in news included a wide range of headlines -- from the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina being marked in New Orleans, to an overgrown sheep in Australia shedding half his body weight in wool. We also saw Russian President Vladimir Putin working out and drinking tea with politicians, Denmark launching their first ever astronaut to space, striking scenes from the European migrant crisis, and a baby gorilla born at the Cincinnati Zoo.

Click through the slideshow above to see photos from all of these stories and more, and be sure to check back next weekend for our selection of the best photos from the next seven days.
