Sun Myung Moon, the founder and head of the Unification Church which has millions of followers around the world, died at a retreat near the South Korean capital Seoul on Monday, church officials said.
Moon was 92 and had suffered complications from pneumonia, the officials said. Moon had been hospitalised in Seoul in mid-August and was moved to the retreat last week when his family and church believed there was little chance of recovery.
