Aug. 17 UPDATE:
Associated Press Corrects
After additional follow up from CAMERA's Israel office, on Aug. 15 the Associated Press corrected the erroneous "Week in Pictures" text so that it now more accurately refers to "Palestinian militant rockets being launched from Gaza in response to Israeli airstrikes." See below for a detailed update.
"From Israeli strikes on Gaza, to flowing volcanoes in Iceland, to flood damage in Kentucky, this photo gallery highlights some of the most compelling images from around the world made or published by The Associated Press in the past week," reads the text accompanying the Associated Press' July 30-Aug. 5 Week in Pictures feature highlighting some of the most dramatic images from the week.

Like flowing volcano, the photo agency's Week in Pictures misinformation has spread across the Internet, appearing on countless news sites including The Independent and San Francisco Chronicle. Though CAMERA contacted AP last week about the photo gallery, curated by AP photo editor James Okungu in New York, the news agency has yet to set the record straight.
