A man carrying two handguns and a copy of the Koran has been arrested at DisneyLand Paris.
Officers swooped after the firearms were detected by an X-ray machine at the entrance to a hotel at the amusement park 20 miles east of the French capital.
The 28-year-old man, who was not known to security services, was stopped by Disney staff who found the weapons hidden in his suitcase at about noon.

Police swooped on the Hotel New York at Disney Village and the man, who had booked a room for two, offered no resistance as he was being taken into custody.
Disneyland has yet to comment on the incident, which comes just months after Islamist terrorists went on the rampage in Paris killing 130 people.
France remained in a state of emergency since the attack on November 13, which targeted the Stade de France, packed cafes and bars and the Bataclan music hall.
The man was carrying two low-calibre handguns, according to an Interior Ministry official, while a police source said he also had ammunition.

The police source said that the arrested man, from Paris, was ‘detected upon his arrival at the Disneyland hotel where he had a reservation. Hotel security found two handguns, a Koran and ammunition on him.’
There are several hotels around Disneyland Paris, which is east of the French capital and is among Europe’s most-visited tourist destinations with some 10 million visitors in 2014, according to that year’s Global Attractions.
Nobody was hurt during the arrest.
