S. Golenetskii, R. Aptekar, V. Pal'shin, D. Frederiks,
D. Svinkin, and T. Cline on behalf of the Konus-Wind team, and

A. von Kienlin, X. Zhang, A. Rau, V. Savchenko, E. Bozzo, and C.
Ferrigno, on behalf of the INTEGRAL SPI-ACS GRB team, report:

The long-duration GRB 130610B has been observed by Konus-Wind, INTEGRAL 
(SPI-ACS), and MESSENGER (GRNS), so far, at about 76880 s UT (21:21:20).

We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 3 sigma error box whose 
coordinates are:
   RA(2000), deg                 Dec(2000), deg
   176.359 (11h 45m 26s) -32.187 (-32d 11' 12")
   176.728 (11h 46m 55s) -31.962 (-31d 57' 43")
   176.012 (11h 44m 03s) -32.983 (-32d 58' 58")
   175.989 (11h 43m 57s) -32.409 (-32d 24' 33")
   176.709 (11h 46m 50s) -31.377 (-31d 22' 36")
The error box area is 0.37 sq. deg, and its maximum dimension is
1.71 deg (the minimum one is 0.31 deg).

This box may be improved.

A triangulation map is posted at

The time history and spectrum will be given in a forthcoming GCN Circular.
