What Is Missing From This Article?

Cuba's official press agency Granma reports:

The number of immigrants who have died on the U.S. border with Mexico rose to 460 in the last fiscal year, according to initial figures from the U.S. Border Patrol released on October 2.

The San Diego Union Tribune tells the story a bit differently (emphasis added):

From Oct. 1, 2004, to Sept. 30, the close of the 2005 federal fiscal year, 460 people are known to have died while trying to cross the border illegally.

No word on last year's Cuban immigration death toll.
