Paris: Cops were hunting a second suspect last night after a man was found with guns at a Disneyland Paris hotel. X-ray equipment detected two pistols and a knife in the 28-year-old guest’s luggage as he entered the site’s New York Hotel.

Terror cops rushed to the scene after guards also found a small book titled A Guide to the Holy Koran, a French police source said.

A woman, thought to be the man’s wife or girlfriend, vanished.The semi-automatic 7.65mm pistols were in cloth bags with two ma­gazines and 20 bullets.

The find followed warnings from terror groups including IS and al-Qaeda that Disneyland was one of their targets.

Security has been increased across the site since last year’s Paris attacks which killed 147 and saw a State of Emergency imposed.

But yesterday police ruled out terrorism. A judicial police source said: “Following questioning, the man made it clear the guns were for personal protection.

“The enquiry is on­going, but it is not a terrorist enquiry.”A spokesman for the park, whose 14million annual visitors include thousands of Brits, said the incid­ent was of huge concern.

He said: “During routine screening, weapons were found and the individual was arrested.”

Cops hunting the missing partner of the man, who is French and was born in Paris, later arrested a woman in the city. But a police source said: “It turned out to be the wrong one.”

A car belonging to the couple, both of European appearance, was towed away.
