Yikes. Based on the pictures, I'm going to WAG a fan disk failure with debris from the cowling causing the window damage.

ETA: I'm not sure it was engine debris that caused the damage. The blown out window pictured is well back from the engine and the fuselage does not seem to have any major damage in the vecinity of the fan/compressor section of the engine.

On second thought, I'm thinking more towards some sort of mid-air collision. The major damage seen on the engine is the very front, before any rotating components. The entire cowling is gone along with the inspection panel and the inner cowling appears fractured across a large part of the engine.
