U.S. Embassy Cables reveal 4,795 refugees fled Haiti in 2004: a 40% increase from the year prior

 Cables from the U.S. Embassy in Nassau, Bahamas, obtained by the whistle blower WikiLeaks show that at least 4,795 Haitians fled their island nation in 2004.

 Serving as corroborating evidence for the findings of the Kolbe-Hudson (Lancet study) in addition to other corroborating human rights reports (Amnesty International, University of Miami, Lawyers Guild, University of Boston, etc), increased refugee flows - 40% increase as stated - is evidence of the major violence propelled by the paramilitaries.
