Here are some of the top Associated Press images you may have missed last week in Latin America and the Caribbean.

In this Sunday, May 15, 2016 photo, a woman walks on a beach blanketed with dead sardines in Tolten, Temuco, Chile. The government declared an emergency zone along Chile's southern coast as it deals with the algae bloom known as red tide, which kills fish with a toxin that paralyzes the central nervous system, and small-scale fishermen are demanding compensation.

In this May 10, 2016 photo, diver Jose Luis Cifuentes covers his face in exhaustion and frustration saying he has no money to buy food, inside his mother-in-law's home in Ancud, Chiloe Island, Chile, during the country's worst ever "red tide" environmental disaster. Chile is among the world's top suppliers of salmon and fishing is the backbone of the economy for many communities along the country's long coast. (AP Photo/Esteban Felix)

In this May 10, 2016, Marco, the 19-year-old son of fisherwoman Marisol Millaquien prepares to take out a boat on an expedition, in hopes of providing food for the dinner table, in Quetalmahue, on Chile's Chiloe Island, during the country's worst ever "red tide" environmental disaster. The view from Millaquien's stilt home is desolate: dozens of abandoned ghostly boats, dead birds and shellfish. "I'm 46. I've seen red tide before, but never like this," she said.
