AP PHOTOS: Meteor explodes over Russia

(AP) - A meteor streaked across the sky and exploded over Russia's Ural Mountains with the power of an atomic bomb Friday, its sonic blasts shattering countless windows and injuring nearly 1,000 people.

Here's a look at photos from the event and its aftermath.
