Iran's government cracks down hard on Monday's demonstrations in solidarity with Egypt

 
Teargas, rubber bullets, batons, knives, live, rounds as well PAINT BALL guns were used to disperse crowds. I would love to find out the brand of those paint ball guns.

Virtual information lock down. No internet, no texting, no cell phones, no phones at all in and around the main squares.

Journalists were banned from the streets and viciously attacked if they did venture out.

The latest report has 1 person confirmed dead and roughly 250 arrested.
Since there are no journalists on the ground some of the reports cannot be independently confirmed.

Its the closest thing we have to journalism from Iran at the moment. I'm sure there will more verifiable reports in the next few days as the internet and other communications become available.
