John the Baptist's skull 'found'
    A team of scientists in Jordan claims to have found the winter home of John the Baptist and say a skull they have recovered may be his.
    If the claims about the cave on the east bank of the River Jordan are proved it would boost tourism to the country, reports the Daily Express.
    The announcement challenges Israel's more established claim to John the Baptist who is believed to have baptised his cousin Jesus on the Jordan's west bank.
