Help

Some 3,500 couples have been married in South Korea in the first mass wedding ceremony organised by the Unification Church since its founder's death.

Another 24,000 followers, often known as Moonies, were married at the same time in other countries via video link, in a ceremony presided over by Hak Ja-han, the widow of Sun Myung Moon, who died in September.
