Haitian refugees escape capital

Many are moving out of devastated Port-au-Prince to seek food and safety elsewhere.



    An initial trickle of refugees has fast become a flood. More Haitians are fleeing the capital now than at any time in the last week, fearful of another quake and scared of what the future might bring.

    A fortunate few have somewhere to flee to, but the majority of refugees have to face a reality of having no job, no house and no prospects.
     
    The Haitian government is even providing free buses for people to leave Port-au-Prince. Others are using any means of transportation they can.
