DHAKA: Thailand’s ex-PM Yingluck Shinawatra and a number of members of her family have been detained, as leaders of the nation’s military coup tighten their grip on power.
Ms Yingluck and scores of politicians from the deposed government had been told to report to the military.
She was kept for several hours and then driven to an undisclosed location.
Army chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha also met key officials, telling them reform must come before any elections.
Gen Prayuth summoned governors, business leaders and civil servants to the Bangkok Army Club on Friday.
Six of Thailand’s most senior military officers have now been appointed to run the country, with provincial commanders supervising local government.
