Render embedded images with Confluence with REST API

I'm using the following api to get page content to display in our website.

/rest/api/content?spaceKey=FAQ&expand=body.view&title=Reports

I'm able to retrieve the html but the images aren't displaying. Is this a bug or do I need to make an extra api call order to render the images?

This widget could not be displayed.

I found that the images would appear when logged into my Confluence site. I enabled anonymous access for the space that I was trying to get the images from and it's working now. I did have to modify src="" in the <img> element by adding the base url name in front of the source url. Another option is to use basic authentication in the URL, as explained in https://developer.atlassian.com/docs/atlassian-platform-common-components/rest-api-development/rest-and-os_authtype.
To use the basic authentication with rest API, you will have to insert the following parameters:
os_username=internal-admin&os_password=mypassword
Replace the internal-admin and the mypassword for the correct information.

If you don't authenticate against Confluence, the content won't be shown as the source of the image is still pointing to Confluence URL.
