Will military coups roll back democracy in West Africa?

Burkina Faso has now witnessed two military coups in nine months.
Leader Paul-Henri Damiba was overthrown by some of the same soldiers who backed him in the first takeover in January.
They say Dambia has to stop attacks by armed groups.
Similar takeovers in Guinea and Mali have raised fears of a rollback of democracy in West Africa.
What’s behind the instability?
And how should the international community respond?
