BANGKOK, May 24 (Xinhua) -- A number of prominent Thai political figures, including former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, have been detained by the military junta, and are expected to be released within a week, deputy army spokesman Winthai Suvaree said on Saturday.

These people are now safe and are being taken good care of, Winthai said.

They will be released at different times, some in three days, some in five days, but no one is expected to be detained for more than a week, he said.
