Disneyland Paris: man carrying two guns arrested

Paris: The French police on Thursday arrested a 28-year old man carrying two handguns, ammunition and Quran from a hotel Disneyland Paris.

The Police arrested the suspected and secured the vehicle.

According to reports, preliminary investigation did not reveal any terror links and the man said that he was carrying guns fearing for his security.
