A man has been arrested carrying two handguns and a copy of the Koran at Disneyland Paris.

Police say the 28-year-old man of European origin had been carrying the guns in a bag. One was an automatic handgun.

The French Interior Ministry said the search is continuing for a woman thought to have been with the man.

Initial reports suggested incorrectly a woman had been arrested.

Disneyland Paris says weapons were discovered in guests's luggage during "routine" screening, individual arrested.

“Firearms were discovered in the bags of man as he went through the metal detector during a routine security check at one of our hotels,” said Disneyland Paris spokesperson Francois Banon.

Officials say the man was known to police before the incident at the park’s New York hotel.

France remains under a state of emergency after militants killed 130 people in a string of bombings and shootings in November.
