We observed the transient IGR J17191-2821 (Atels #1021,#1022,#1025,#1065,#1068,#1069) again for 1.8 ksec on May 07 (18:30 UTC) with Swift/XRT in the imaging mode (Photon-Counting mode). The source is heavily piled-up but a position could be obtained: (RA, DEC)=(259.81306, -28.29919) (J2000) with an error of ~4 arcsec. This improved position is offset from the original Integral position (Atel #1021) by about 3.8 arcminutes, but is consistent with the variable faint source detected in our Swift/XRT observation taken on March 8 (Atel #1025).
