Abstract: The gamma-ray observatory INTEGRAL, launched in October 2002, produces awealth of discoveries and new results on compact high energy Galactic objects,nuclear gamma-ray line emission, diffuse line and continuum emission, cosmicbackground radiation, AGN and high energy transients. Two importantserendipitous discoveries made by the INTEGRAL mission are new classes of X-raybinaries, namely the highly-obscured high-mass X-ray binaries, and thesuper-giant fast transients. In this paper I will review the current status ofthese discoveries.
