A Philippine general says American intelligence guided his troops in a hunt for militants, but eight villagers were slain.

The human rights commission report recommending criminal and administrative proceedings against troops and officers involved in the operation was written before a Times reporter informed the panel of Rafael's account of U.S. surveillance. The commission gets its mandate from the Philippine Constitution.
