A Russian 'Progress' cargo ship, launched Friday from the Baikonur space station in Kazakhstan, docked Wednesday at the International Space Station, the Russian news agency Interfax said.

"The docking proceeded on manual systems. The operation was conducted by the station commander Gennady Padalka," said a spokesman for the Russian space agency. It was initially expected that the docking would take place in automatic mode.

The Progress M-67 cargo ship is carrying 2.5 tons of freight, including fuel, scientific equipment, water, gas, and packages from NASA, the US space agency.

Six astronauts, including two Russians and an American, are currently on board the ISS.
