BANGKOK — A woman in Papua New Guinea was axed to death after being accused of using witchcraft to spark a measles outbreak in the country's remote jungle highlands, an American missionary said after meeting authorities. The victim, Mifila, was one of four women accused along with 13 of their family members of using sorcery to cause measles deaths last November, according to Lutheran missionary Anton Lutz.
