Which one? The article doesn't even seem to say what the market was called. Not surprising that another has been taken down, though. These markets will likely become obsolete any way when decentralized markets get going.

1 million euros... that is around 4K bitcoins.
Now we will have to wait for these to be auctioned.

Europol's press release doesn't enter into details; however, they said it was facilitating the exchange of child sexual abuse material as well as servicing crime by hosting sellers of illegal commodities such as weapons, passport and identity documents, counterfeit and cloned credit cards, hacking services, and close to 210 sellers of drugs. According to them, it was operating from the Italian region of Campania thus probably facilitating also Camorra illegal ops. News outlets here in Italy reporting from police sources said that it was "a community that numbered 14 thousand officially registered members, 170 thousand participants in total, 12 hidden services accessible only inside the Tor network and seized 11 thousand cryptocurrencies' wallets containing an unspecified amount of BTC."
I don't think they could publish further details to avoid damage to legal proceedings & trial.
