The Rev. Sun Myung Moon -- founder of the church whose followers are colloquially known as the Moonies -- died early Monday in South Korea, an organization affiliated with his church said.
The Universal Peace Federation said on its website that Moon died early Monday morning of complications related to pneumonia. He was 92.
The Washington Times, one of several publications that Moon founded, similarly reported Moon's death.
