MOSCOW, Sept 17 (Reuters) - A Russian Soyuz capsule landed on the Kazakh steppe on Monday, delivering a trio of astronauts from a four-month stint on the International Space Station.

The capsule, carrying US astronaut Joseph Acaba and Russian cosmonauts Gennady Padalka and Sergei Revin, parachuted through a cloudless sky and touched down in a cloud of dust at 8:53 local time (0253 GMT).

"We have landed," an announcer at Russia's mission control in Moscow announced to applause.
