N.Mowlavi, M. Beck (ISDC, Versoix), and J. Borkowski (CAMK, Torun) on 
behalf of the IBAS Localization Team report:

A GRB lasting about 40 s has been detected by IBAS in IBIS/ISGRI data on 
March 9 at 10:01:03 UT

The coordinates (J2000)  are:
RA:  263.6848 [degrees]
DEC: -37.9446 [degrees]

with an uncertainty of 2.5 arcmin (90% c.l.).

Preliminary analysis of the IBIS data indicates a peak flux of 0.2 
photons/cmq s (20-200 keV, 1 s integration time) and a fluence of 5x10e-7 

A plot of the light curve will be posted at
