the MB: a vast arrays of groups in more than 80 countries

The Muslim Brothers encompass vast arrays of groups, branches, and militants in more than eighty countries. Their core is in Egypt, but the organisation is also very powerful in neighbouring Arab countries with Sunny populations. The number of members is very difficult to estimate due to the opacity of groups that do not brand themselves “Muslim Brothers” but belong to its network, and because they are outlawed in some countries.
