Mass wedding in South Korea despite coronavirus fear

Despite concerns about the spread of the virus, a mass Unification Church wedding has gone ahead in South Korea.

    There has been a mass wedding in South Korea despite coronavirus fear. Many of the 6,000 couples wore face masks.

    Festivals, concerts and graduation ceremonies have been cancelled because of the risk.

    But the church says it went ahead with the weddings as it was the 100th anniversary of its leader's birth.

    Followers from China were asked not to attend.

    Mass weddings with tens of thousands of couples have been a signature feature of the church since the 1960s.
