Although the question of Macedonia’s name is sometimes seen as superficial by outsiders, it is a matter of deep concern to both sides.

Attacks kill 21 Shiite pilgrims
BAGHDAD — Bomb attacks struck Shiite pilgrims Monday during an important religious ritual for the Muslim sect, killing 21 people and wounding nearly 100 others, Iraqi officials said.
Pilgrims marking the ritual of Ashoura are often targeted by Sunni extremists who believe that Shiites are not true Muslims.
In Monday’s first attack, a bomb exploded in Latifiyah, about 20 miles south of the Iraqi capital, killing two of them and wounding three others, police said.
Hours later, a car bomb exploded near a group of pilgrims in the town of Mahaweel as they were heading to the city of Karbala, killing eight people and wounding about 56 other pilgrims, said police officials in Babil province.
And two later attacks against Shiite pilgrims in Baghdad killed 11 people and wounded 32 others, police said.
