    That sort of use is common in headlines and titles. You wouldn't normally find it in a complete sentence.
    "claimed" stands there like an adjective.
    I suppose you could look at it that way but it just means "proof claimed" or "proof that's been claimed".

    Good point. It probably wasn't intended that way but, in the sentence as written, it serves that function.
