Indonesian authorities disrupted a chilling Good Friday terror plot Thursday, digging up a massive bomb buried atop a gas pipeline near a church.

The country went on "high alert" following the discovery, deploying troops to churches and other locations, officials said.

The sinister terror plot was uncovered when authorities rounded up 19 terror suspects, who alerted them to the bomb.

The 330-pound explosive device had been placed atop an underground gas pipeline about 100 yards from a Roman Catholic Church outside Jakarta that can hold up to 3,000 people.

Investigators said they believed the bomb was set to go off during Good Friday celebrations when the church would be packed.
