PARIS - Euro Disneyland has a different sort of visitor this weekend - the murder squad, writes Julian Nundy.

Just after 3am on Thursday, a security guard - Anton Kamalanesan Ponrajah, a Sri Lankan political refugee - was found stabbed to death in the strong- room of the park's most luxurious hotel, the strawberry-pink five-star Euro Disneyland. Half an hour earlier, he had taken 70,000 francs ( pounds 8,100) from the cashier's office to the strong-room. The money was stolen before it could be locked in a safe.

Police sources suggested the killer was almost certain to have come from among the 12,000 Disney employees at the site.
