Arguing that profits this year are significantly lower because of labor strikes and terror attacks, Disneyland and 20 other leading tourist companies have written to the French government and urged them to set up a special, armed police force in the capital.

In a letter issued late September, the tourist firms gathered under the rubric Alliance 46.2 said the measures are necessary because Paris has been the target of two major terror attacks while violent labor strikes have led to social paralysis, and Asian tourists have especially been the victim of crime over the past three years including muggings.

All of these factors, argue Alliance 46.2, have given the city a bad image and as a result the association fears a 4 to 5 percent drop in tourism this year.
