And so end any chance of unity talks between the SOC and MOC for the next few years.

Macedonian news sources have indicated that Bulgarian authorities have decided to keep Archbishop John in Bulgarian prison for 72 hours. There seems to be some talk back and forth between the Macedonian authorities and the Serbian Authorties with Bulgaria. Apparently, John+ was in Bulgaria with a Serbian passport so extriditing him to Macedonia will be difficult.
