Nonnegatively curved fixed point homogeneous 5-manifolds

Let G be a compact Lie group acting effectively by isometries on a compact Riemannian manifld M with nonempty fixed point set Fix(M,G). We say that the action is fixed point homogeneous if G acts transitively on a normal sphere to some component of Fix(M,G), equivalently, if Fix(M,G) has codimension one in the orbit space of the action. We classify up to diffeomorphism closed, simpley connected 5-manifolds with nonnegative sectional curvature and an effective fixed point homogeneous isometric action of a compact Lie group.
