An archaeological report that could help decide the future of the controversial Ayodhya religious site in northern India has been completed.
Archaeologists who excavated the site handed in their report to a court in Lucknow, in Uttar Pradesh, on Friday.
They were investigating claims that an ancient Hindu temple had stood on the site where a subsequent mosque was destroyed by hardline Hindus in 1992.
