S.Mereghetti, A.Paizis (IASF-Milano), E. Bozzo, M. Beck (ISDC,  
Versoix), and J.Borkowski (CAMK, Torun) on behalf of the IBAS  
Localization Team report:

A faint long GRB with duration of about 100 s has been detected by  
IBAS in IBIS/ISGRI data at 23:00:17 UTC on August 15th. No automatic  
alert has been issued because the trigger was at low significance.

Interactive off-line analysis has allowed to confirm the GRB nature of  
the trigger.

The refined coordinates (J2000) are:

RA:   306.13 [degrees]   DEC: -6.17 [degrees]

with an uncertainty of 3 arcmin (90% c.l.).

The soft spectrum of the GRB (only detected in the 20-40 keV energy  
range) and the long, slowly rising light curve may indicate a highly  
redshifted burst. Follow-up observations at other wavelengths are  

The light curve of the GRB will be posted at
