Name sign comes down at FYROM airport

Workers remove the letters of the sign reading "Alexander the Great Airport" on the front of the airport building near Skopje, on Saturday. Amid ongoing name talks with Greece, the government of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) decided to rename the airport to Skopje International Airport and the Alexander of Macedonia Highway leading to the Greek border to Friendship Highway in a gesture of goodwill.
