Renewed accretion activity has been reported by Swift/XRT (ATel #1459), XTE/PCA (ATel #1460) and INTEGRAL/IBIS/ISGRI (ATel #1461) from the RXTE transient IGR J17473-2721 (= XTE J1747-274; ATels #467, #498) after the detection of an X-ray burst by SuperAGILE (ATel #1445). From the on-going Galactic bulge monitoring program (see ATels #1385, #1461) we report that the transient continues to brighten as seen with IBIS/ISGRI and JEM-X.
