This week in pictures: volcanic eruption, continuous heat wave and forest fires in Europe

This week, Iceland witnessed a massive volcanic eruption, Spain continued to battle its wildfires as Europe suffered another heat wave, and residential areas were again affected in different parts of Ukraine amid the Russian invasion of the country.

It’s how these and other stories this week have been captured by photojournalists around the world.
