October 21, 2010 22:14

JERUSALEM — The UN's Mideast envoy Robert Serry on Thursday criticized Israel's renewed building in West Bank settlements in response to an Associated Press investigation.

The AP report showed that Israel has begun building at least 544 apartments since a 10-month building moratorium in the settlements expired late last month.

In a statement, Serry called the AP report "alarming." He said settlement construction is "illegal under international law" and "will only further undermine trust."
