Amman Hotel Bombing

CNN and Fox News had identical AP articles on the Iraqi woman who failed in her bid to blow herself up in an Amman hotel. They chose different headlines which are listed below:

CNN: U.S. killed confessed bomber's brothers, friends say

FOX: Three of Bombing Suspect's Brothers Died in Iraq

Does CNN’s wording indicate some fault of the U.S. in causing the hotel bombing? Fox’s headline just indicates that her brothers had died in Iraq. Subtle difference, yes. Indication of bias? Perhaps.
