Police discovered the body of a 79-year-old Christian woman killed in northeast Nigeria, with her throat slit and a note in Arabic left on her chest reading, "We will get you soon," ABC News reports. Authorities also found a Bible placed under Shetu Haruna Malgwi's feet. Her family believed the note was for her son, the pastor of a local church where she sang in the choir. Police are investigating the killing but say they know of no immediate suspects; witnesses, however, blamed the attack on the militant Islamist group Boko Haram, which has taken credit for the deaths of at least 305 people so far this year. Religious tensions continue to rise in Nigeria as Boko Haram increasingly targets Christians in its bloody attacks.
