With celebrations for lockdown restrictions ending in Sweden contrasting with medics dealing with record infection rates in Romania, and dramatic scenes in La Palma as a volcano continues to erupt, this photo gallery highlights some of the most compelling images made or published in the past week by The Associated Press from Europe and Africa.

The selection was curated by AP photo editor Fabio Polimeni in Rome.
