Anniversary of controversial mass wedding

Thirty years ago the head of the Unification Church carried out a controversial mass wedding of more than 2000 couples in New York.

The Reverend Moon, who believes in creating world peace through marriage, had matched the couples himself.

The Moonie Church, which is accused by its critics of being more like a cult, claims most of those marriages have survived.

Laura Trevelyan reports from the anniversary celebrations in New York.
