Iran Cuts Off Internet

Don't expect to get a lot of images from Monday's scheduled protests in Iran.

The Iranian government has cut off Internet access in advance of the anticipated demonstrations on Student's Day.

Students were expected to take to the troops to protest the disputed presidential election and the crackdown on those who previously demonstrated in the streets.

The Iranian government has pledged to crackdown on demonstrators. The government was embarrassed by images emailed out of militia members beating and shooting demonstrators over the summer.

The government also arrested 20 mothers of protesters who were killed over the weekend - apparently to prevent them from joining in the Monday demonstrations
