Successful Soyuz landing after safety delays


The delayed Soyuz capsule carrying a US astronaut and two Russian cosmonauts has landed safely back on earth after six months on the International Space Station.

Officials said the capsule had landed upright almost exactly on target in Northern Kazakhstan at 1123 local time.

Their first attempt to leave the station in the Soyuz capsule on Friday was aborted when computers signalled a technical problem.
