S Koreans mark religious leader's death

Sun Myung Moon, founder of Unification Church, had millions of followers, but some fear family feud could damage legacy.

    It has been a year since the founder of South Korea's Unification Church died.

    Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who styled himself as a messiah and took his brand of religion to more than 100 countries, had millions of followers and built a vast business empire.

    But some fear a power struggle within his family could damage his legacy.
