Soyuz Craft Undocks for Return to Earth

MOSCOW (AP) — A Soyuz craft carrying two Russian cosmonauts and Malaysia’s first space traveler left its docking port at the international space station on Sunday, starting a return trip to Earth, footage from Russian mission control showed.

The capsule was to bring Fyodor Yurchikhin and Oleg Kotov home in about three hours after a six-month stint at the station, along with Malaysian Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor, who arrived at the orbital outpost Oct. 12.
