3 astronauts arrive at International Space Station

Moscow - A Soyuz spacecraft carrying a Russian, an American and a Dutchman has docked at the International Space Station.

Mission commander Oleg Kononenko and his colleagues, American Don Pettit and European Space Agency astronaut Andre Kuipers, had travelled through space for two days for their arrival on Friday.

They will join three others already on the orbiting station: Nasa's Dan Burbank and Russians Anton Shkaplerov and Anatoly Ivanishin.

The six will work together on the station until March.
