MOSCOW, Oct. 21 (UPI) -- Two Russian cosmonauts and Malaysia's first space traveler landed safely in Kazakhstan Sunday after leaving the International Space Station.

Cosmonauts Fyodor Yurchikhin and Oleg Kotov returned aboard the Soyuz capsule after six months on the space station, RIA Novosti reported.

Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor of Malaysia had been on the station since Oct. 12.

All three were reported in good health and high spirits, said Valery Lyndin, a spokesman for Russia's Mission Control.
