Iran's government stepped up its filtering of internet content that dramatically slowed down connection speeds, reported CBS News on Monday.

According to the report, witnesses provided unconfirmed reports of anti-government gatherings on Sunday being quickly broken up by a massive security presence.

The New York-based International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran, said witnesses had told of police and other security agents resorting to live ammunition to break up large groups of protesters on Sunday. The group was told at least one person had died in clashes, but that report could not be confirmed, reported CBS News.
