A car bomb has killed four people near the Syrian city of Aleppo. 

The bomb was detonated in Azaz, 20 miles northwest of the war-ravaged city. 

A Syrian Civil Defence official claims the explosive was detonated near a school, in a statement given to the Anadolu news agency. 

Seven people were injured in the incident, and, given the severity of the injuries, the death toll is expected to increase.

The impact of the blast also caused damage to nearby cars and buildings. 

Peace talks which were held at the United Nations in Geneva and in the Kazakhstan capital of Astana failed to reach a resolution to end the conflict in Syria, which has been embroiled in civil war since 2011.
