Airplane falls apart in mid air

About 10 seconds after liftoff from runway 19R something happens with the left engine. A lot of smoke and fragments of metal and other material falls down on the runway. At first the pilots don't get any indications in the cockpit and plan to go on to Kuala Lumpur. Then we decide to call Arlanda duty officer to make sure that they have noticed the pieces from the engine on the runway. Shortly after that the pilots requests fueldump and return to ARN safely.

I'm not an expert, but I'm pretty sure sutff isn't supposed to fall out of your engine. Click the above for the full-sized image. You can actually see smoke and debris pouring out of there.
