Cyrenaica is the eastern coastal region of Libya. The name derives from the city Cyrene. It was once heavily colonized by Greeks and was conquered by Alexander the Great. It also came under the rule of several empires, such as the Romans, Ottomans, and Italians. Arabs came in 643/44 and brought Islam to the region. Almost all 1.6 million Cyrenaican Arabs are Muslim.Engagement // What’s Happening Now
