A Russian cargo ship docked on Friday with the International Space Station carrying clothes, food, oxygen, medical supplies, fuel and a new space suit, RIA Novosti reported from space control centre.

The Progress M-66 carrying 2.4 tonnes of cargo docked without difficulty to the orbiting space station, currently home to two Americans and a Russian.

It also carried equipment for scientific work aboard the station.
