Two arrested at Disneyland Paris after guns, ammo, Koran found in suitcase

French police arrested a man and woman at a Disneyland Paris theme park hotel after the man was found with two handguns, ammo and a Koran inside his suitcase.

“During a routine security screening checkpoint at one of our hotels, weapons were discovered in a guest’s luggage through our x-ray machine. The police were immediately notified and the individual was arrested. We continue to work closely with the authorities, and the safety and security of our guests and cast members is our utmost priority,” the park's Vice President of Communication and Public Affairs François Banon said.

French media report the man is from Paris, but not known to the local police or French intelligence.

The woman arrested is the man's girlfriend, a police source told AFP.

French broadcaster RTL reported that police seized two small-caliber handguns and a 7.65 caliber cartridge box. A small Koran was also found in the man’s suitcase.

Disneyland Paris, located 18 miles east of the French capital, is Europe’s most visited theme park, attracting around 10 million visitors in 2014.

Employees at the New York Hotel and several others around Disneyland Paris said they continued functioning as usual after the arrest.

France remains under a state of emergency following the series of attacks in Paris in November that left 130 dead. Disneyland Paris closed briefly after the massacre.

The state of emergency is scheduled to expire at the end of February, but President Francois Hollande last week proposed a three-month extension. Nearly 400 people had been placed under house arrest through the state of emergency, according to an official breakdown in late December.
