Here's a gallery highlighting last week's top images from the AP's photo report from Latin America. It features a destructive and fatal forest fire in Chile; a Honduran migrant walking on prosthetic legs in Mexico after his accident on a northward-bound train; a bus accident in Mexico that killed the majority of its passengers; protesters in Venezuela opposed to the opposition's agreement to reconciliation talks with the government; a herd of cattle in Chile struck dead by lightening; a girl playing in an area occupied by squatters in Brazil; exploded bullets at a security expo in Mexico; unique ear ornaments at Fashion Week in Brazil; and the aftermath of a strong earthquake in Nicaragua.

This gallery contains photos published April 7-13.
