KHARTOUM - Sudanese police crushed two small anti-government protests on Monday with teargas when youths began a second attempt to emulate popular uprisings in neighboring Libya and Egypt.

Hit by an economic crisis with rising inflation and political uncertainty as the oil-producing south voted to secede ending decades of civil war, Khartoum is vulnerable. But the protest movement seemed to have lost momentum earlier in the year when police arrested or beat back thousands of youths.

On Monday, heavily armed police surrounded universities in north Sudan and deployed throughout the capital Khartoum.
