No casualties were reported in the attack but the embassy’s building was partially damaged, Yibeltal Ayimiro Alemu, the Ethiopian ambassador to Sudan, told the BBC.
The Sudanese paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF), which has been fighting with the army since 15 April, has blamed the army for the attack.
The Sudanese army has not commented on the attack.
It is not the first time the Ethiopian embassy in Khartoum has been attacked.
