Ai WeiWei Detained: Which Other Dissidents Have Been Detained During China's Crackdown?

The recent disappearance of one of China's most famous contemporary artists sparked new concern for the fate of the country's dissidents.

As the Associated Press is reporting, Ai WeiWei's disappearance comes just as China has begun arresting and detaining dozens of lawyers, writers and activists following online calls for "Jasmine Revolution" protests, similar to those in the Middle East and North Africa.

To date, no public protests on the massive crackdown have been reported.

Take a look at some of China's most high-profile dissidents currently being detained below:
