on behalf of the Suzaku WAM team report:

The long GRB 070107 (Stamatikos et al., GCN 5999; Barthelmy et al., 
GCN 6001) triggered the Suzaku Wide-band All-sky Monitor (WAM), 
which covers the energy range of 50 keV - 5 MeV, at 12:05:06 UT(=T0). 
The light curve shows double peaks with a total duration of 
about 92 seconds. The fluence in 100 - 1000 keV of the burst was 
1.57 +- 0.13 x 10^-5 erg/cm2, while the 1-s peak flux was 
1.18 (-0.13, +0.14) photons/cm2/s in the same energy range.

The time-averaged spectrum from T0-66 sec to T0+94 sec is well fitted
by a single power-law model. The power-law photon index of its spectrum 
is 1.75 (-0.13,+0.15). All the quoted errors are at statistical 90%
confidence level, while systematic errors are not included.
