AIKEN, S.C. (AP) — A former South Carolina worker at the Savannah River Site has filed a federal lawsuit, claiming racial and religious discrimination by co-workers.

The Aiken Standard reported Friday that 41-year-old Al Zeiny sued his former employer in U.S. District Court in Aiken. The Egyptian native was lead structural engineer at Washington Safety Management Solutions.

The lawsuit states that co-workers said Zeiny was linked to terrorism and bomb-making after a conversation about him being a Muslim. Zeiny says he was fired after he filed a complaint.

Washington Safety Management Solutions is part of the engineering and construction company URS Corp. A call to the company was not immediately returned Friday.
