French police confirmed they have arrested a man after he was found carrying two 7.65 calibre firearms – also known as automatic colt pistols – hidden in a bag.
He was allegedly also carrying a copy of the Koran and a pack of cartridges in the bag, local media said.
The 28-year-old, who lives in Paris, was arrested as his bag was scanned by security when he entered the Hotel New York next to the Disney village opposite the park in the Seine-et-Marne area to reserve a room.
His bag immediately set off an alarm on the scanner which had been put in place as the capital remains on high terror alert following the slaughter of 130 people during an attack by Islamic State jihadists in November.
He did not resist arrest.
The man, who was only known to the authorities for driving without a licence, has been placed in custody while police search for his companion said to be a woman.
The mayor of Seine-et-Marne, said: “I highlight that the Disney security services and the order forces immediately reacted so this person was locked up.
