Paris police detain Muslim checking into Disneyland hotel with two guns in his luggage.

Police said they took the 28-year-old man into custody at around 2 p.m. local time when he tried to pass through security at the park’s New York Hotel. The man, a French national who wasn’t known to law enforcement, was carrying a copy of the Quran and had booked a room at the hotel, police said.

So enjoy your summer indoors, and don’t let the bedbugs bite.
