International Space Station air pressure restored after leak. Gray Hall reports during Action News at 6 a.m. on September 1, 2018.

RUSSIA (WPVI) -- Russia's space agency says air pressure on the International Space Station has been restored to proper levels after a leak was repaired.

The leak was discovered Thursday and traced to a small hole in one of the Russian Soyuz capsules docked at the station.

Russian officials say the problem could have been a flaw in the material or a micro-meteorite strike.
