S.Mereghetti, A.Paizis (IASF-Milano), D.Gotz (CEA-Saclay), A.Manousakis, 
V.Beckmann, M. Beck (ISDC, Versoix), and J. Borkowski (CAMK, Torun) 
on behalf of the IBAS Localization Team report:

A  GRB lasting about 20 s has been detected by IBAS in IBIS/ISGRI 
data at  17:28:30 UT of January 20.
The coordinates (J2000)  are:

RA = 225.2547
Dec= -10.8854

with an uncertainty of 2 arcmin (90% c.l.).

A preliminary analysis gives a peak flux in the 20-200 keV range of about 
3 ph/cmq/s (1-s integration time) and a fluence over the same energy range 
of 1.5e-6 erg/cmq.

A plot of the light curve will be posted at
