Egypt's Brotherhood's faces greatest test

Muslim Brotherhood threatened by calls for president's resignation just months after taking power.

    When Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood was formed in the 1920s, it called for social services and a modern Islamic society.

    In the decades since, the organisation has grown into a modern political force and seized the reins of power.

    Now that it is in power, however, the Brotherhood faces perhaps its greatest test.
