Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng arrives in Taiwan

Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng has arrived in Taiwan for an 18-day trip that is likely to anger Beijing.

Mr Chen, who arrived on Sunday, is expected to meet opposition lawmakers and discuss human rights in China.

The self-taught lawyer, who is blind, sparked a diplomatic row last year when he escaped house arrest and sought refuge in the US embassy in Beijing.

He was eventually allowed to travel to the US to pursue further studies.
