Safe landing for Soyuz capsule

A Soyuz space capsule carrying two Russian crew and an American space tourist has returned to Earth.

The craft landed safely in Kazakhstan after returning from the International Space Station.

Richard Garriott, who paid about $30m (17m) for the 10-day trip, is following in the footsteps of his father, who was a Nasa astronaut in the 1970s.

The initial commentary is from Nasa TV.
