Photos of the week: 4/29 - 5/6

Over the past week in news, we saw stories including President Obama's visit to Flint, Michigan, where he drank a glass of their infamously-tainted water to prove that it is now safe for consumption. We also watched May Day celebrations and protests around the world as well as ongoing preparations for the Kentucky Derby.

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 photography from the coming days.
