Observatory (China) responded to the the burst gathering images starting 
at 20:17:12 UT (89 s after trigger, 84 s after notice). No optical 
afterglow candidate is found down to 18 mag (g'-band) in the co-added 
(5x10s) image within the reported INTEGRAL 2 arcmin radius error box. 
Observations are ongoing."
