Muslim Brotherhood: A Force Throughout The Muslim World

Muslim Brotherhood: A Force Throughout The Muslim World, by Krishnadev Calamur (NPR, 17 August 2013)

Excerpt:
The Muslim Brotherhood, which has a presence in dozens of Muslim countries, has been banned, repressed or restricted for much of its more than eight-decade history in Egypt, the place where it was born. After ruling Egypt for the past year, the group was effectively ousted when the military overthrew Mohammed Morsi as president on July 3. The security forces have cracked down on the Brotherhood and its supporters this past week, resulting in leaving hundreds dead.
