The three ministers were being held at a military camp in Kati, around 12 miles from the capital Bamako.
The whereabouts of the ousted president are unknown, but the coup leader, Captain Amadou Haya Sanogo, said on state television that Touré was "doing well and is safe".
After storming the presidential palace, the rebels dissolved Mali's constitution and democratic institutions, along with imposing a military curfew and closing the country's borders.
They have formed a group called the National Committee for the Restoration of Democracy and State (CNRDR), which promised to hand back power to a democratically-elected president as soon "as the country is reunified and its integrity is no longer threatened".
