A shop worker stabbed a colleague for calling him a slave, a Court was told.

Sadiq Salam claimed fellow Sudanese worker Waleed Bashir said people from his region should be wiped out like insects.

Salam told a jury at Lewes Crown Court that he attacked his victim in anger at the Welldone store in North Street, Brighton, with a piece of glass from a broken bottle.

He admits wounding Mr Bashir.

But the 20-year-old, of Charlotte Mews, Kemp Town, Brighton, denies attempted murder, making threats to kill and assault.

The trial continues.
