Disneyland Paris – did French police thwart an attack?

Ammo, Guns, Qu’ran

A 7.65 cartridge box, along with two small caliber handguns were confiscated by French police. A small Qu’ran was also found in his luggage. Reports seem to conflict on whether the handguns were automatics or semi-automatic. The man claimed he was in fear for his life and that’s why he had the guns.

Police surrounded the hotel Thursday evening, and one car was towed from the parking lot, according to SOFREP. France is still under high alert after the November attacks.
