Abstract

The X-ray afterglow of the short GRB 061201 clearly showed an early steepening of the light curve 0.7 hours after the burst with post break decay index consistent with δ2∼2. We discuss some possible interpretations of this feature. Despite the optical afterglow was clearly detected, no underlying galaxy was found down to R≥26 mag.
