    Two US senators are asking federal authorities to crack down on an online narcotics market that accepts 'virtual' currency.

    The 'Dark Web', an anonymous and secretive online community that trades in heroin, cocaine and methamphetamines among other drugs, has been operating unhindered for months.

    The two senators have written to the US Justice Department and Drug Enforcement Administration asking them to shut down and investigate the site.
