MISSION CONTROL (Moscow Region), October 21 (RIA Novosti) - A Soyuz capsule with two Russian cosmonauts and Malaysia's first space traveler aboard landed on Sunday in Kazakhstan.

Shortly before landing, the Soyuz spacecraft deviated from its designated course but landed safely with no harm to the crew, a spokesman for the Mission Control said.

The spacecraft brought back to Earth Russian cosmonauts Fyodor Yurchikhin and Oleg Kotov after six months of their stay at the International Space Station (ISS) as members of the ISS 15th expedition, along with Malaysian Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor who arrived at the world's sole orbiter on October 12.
