Online content mentioning the protests in Egypt has been censored in China, TIME reported on Monday.

The word "Egypt" has been blocked from the web and micro-blogs, while an editorial in the state-run Global Times newspaper said that "democracy is still far away for Tunisia and Egypt" because "in the West, democracy is not only a political system, but a way of life" that does not exist in Asia and Africa.
