Although engines can explode or separate from an aircraft in flight; this should be very rare in cruise – usually it’s severe weather/pilot error related – like Air France A330 – in this case no severe weather was reported. An Egypt Air flite was intentially brought down by its Egyptian co-pilot a few years ago into the north atlantic, and a BA 777 also did suffer a twin engine ‘flame out’ and landing short of the runway due to ‘fuel starvation’ on approach to Heathrow a few years ago; so you can’t say for certain something like this did not happen.
Much more likely is an explosion on board causing an explosive decompression compromising the airframe.
