Mass wedding for Moonies

Some 3500 couples have been married in South Korea in the first mass wedding ceremony organised by the Unification Church since its founder's death.

The ceremony took place yesterday at Cheongshim Peace World Centre in Gapyeong, about 60km northeast of Seoul.

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.

The church performed its first mass wedding in 1961 with 33 couples.
