Libyans are people from Libya, a country located in North Africa. The Libyan population are mainly ethnically Arabs while a small number are Berbers who conquered and emigrated to Libya since the seventeenth century after Christ. Their culture is basically Muslim, but still retains the Berber culture in certain parts of the country, representing, according some Statistics over 10% of the total population. Although, according to DNA studies, 90% of the Libyan population descended from Berbers and the rest of the 10% are from Arabs, Italians and other North African and European people. The 2012 worldwide Libyan population is estimated at 7 million and the ethnic Arab Libyan population from that estimate is around 6.4 million after the 2011 Libyan civil war.
